Answer :

Given: S is any point on side QR of ΔPQR.


To Prove: PQ + QR + RP > 2PS


Proof:


We know, sum of two sides of triangle is greater than the third side


In ΔPQS


PQ + QS > PS …………(1)


In Δ PSR


PR + SR > PS ……..(2)


Adding (1) and (2)


PQ + QS + PR + SR > PS + PS


PQ + QS + SR + PR > 2PS


PQ + QR + PR > 2PS [QR = QS + SR]


Hence, proved.
