# can we draw a triangle of sides 4 cm , 6 cm and 2cm.

Dear Student!

It is known that for any triangle, sum of any two sides of a triangle is always greater than the third side.
For the given triangle,
4 cm + 6 cm = 10 cm > 2 cm
6 cm + 2 cm = 8 cm > 4 cm
But, 2 cm + 4 cm = 6 cm

Therefore, we cannot construct the triangle with sides 4 cm, 6 cm and 2 cm

Cheers!
