What is the difference of AB and AC when the construction of a triangle ABC, given that BC = 3 cm, DC = 60° is possible?
(i) 2.8 cm
(ii) 3.4 cm
(iii) 4 cm
(iv) 3.1 cm
We know that the difference of any two sides of a triangle is less than the third side.
So, (AB – AC) must be less than 3 cm.
When AB – AC = 2.8 cm, the condition satisfies.
The construction of the given ΔABC is possible when difference of AB and AC is equal to 2.8 cm.
