Q:
# The lengths of the sides of triangle XYZ are in terms of the variable m, where m ≥ 6.Which is correct regarding the angles of the triangle? mX < mZ < mY mY < mZ < mX mY < mX < mZmZ < mY < mXI think its c but im not sure

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:mY < mZ < mX Step-by-step explanation:Since we know that m≥6, we will substitute 6 in for m.This makes XZ = m-3 = 6-3 = 3. XY = m+8 = 6+8 = 14. YZ = 2(6)+3 = 12+3 = 15.This makes the sides, in order from least to greatest, XZ < XY < YZ.The angles associated with these are opposite their corresponding sides; XZ corresponds with Y; XY corresponds with Z; and YZ corresponds with X. This means our inequality would beY < Z < X
