1. Consider a triangle with sides a, b and c. 2. a, b and c can be sides of a triangle only if each of these conditions hold:          i)  a+b>c          ii) b+c>a and   iii)a+c>b 3. So the only condition for 3 numbers to be the side lengths of a triangle is that the sum of any 2 of them must be larger than the third number 4. This is called the "triangle inequality".
