A) 4 B) 6
C) 8 D) None of the above

Answer:   B) 6



Explanation:

The measure of the third side of a triangle must lie between the sum and the difference of the other two sides. Using this fact along with the answer choices, we can eliminate the wrong answers. 

 

    • Option A  cannot be correct because 4 would not be the longest side.(sides 4, 5, and 4)   

 

    • Option B could be correct because the other two sides would be 3 and 4.  

 

    • Option C cannot be correct because this third side would be greater than the sum of the other two sides.
