The length of x is such that 2 < x < 8. What is the length y of the given triangle?

In a triangle sum of lengths of either two sides is always greater than the third side and also difference of lengths of either two sides is always lesser than the third side.
So, 5 - y < x < 5 + y
Also, it is given that 2 < x < 8
So, comparing the above two inequalities, we get
5 + y = 8
i.e. y = 8 - 5 = 3

- Define the property for lengths of sides of the triangle. Using it, state whether a triangle is possible with sides: 10.7 cm, 5.6 cm and 3.5 cm.
- The lengths of two sides of a triangle are 11 cm and 14 cm. Between what two measures should the length of the third side fall?
- Is it possible to have a triangle with the sides having following lengths? 5 cm, 3 cm, 4 cm
- Is it possible to have a triangle with the following sides? 2 cm, 9 cm, 6 cm
- Between what two measures should the length of the side DB fall?
- What range of length is possible for the third side, x?
- Two sides of a triangle are 6 cm and 10 cm long. Determine a range of possible measures for the third side of the triangle.
- Is it possible to construct a triangle with sides measuring 20 cm, 25 cm and 48 cm?
