The triangle inequality theorem states that in a triangle, you can pick any two sides’ measures, and when you add them together, the sum will be greater than the measure of the third side. This theorem can be a great importance in construction working. If a construction worker is trying to construct something with a triangle shape, and wants to know if the three measures will make a triangle, then the worker can use the triangle inequality theorem to add the measures together, and see if they will work.  For example, if you had a measurement of 3, 10, and 8 then add them together, 13>8, 18>3, and 11>10.  Therefore, the three measurements can make a triangle.

    That makes sense because there are a lot of tirnagles in constructing.

  2. Lydia Lusk Says:

    This is very true.

  3. derra lusk Says:

    very true It does work in construction

  4. janelle hoatson Says:

    thats good to no because alot of people think u dont need to no much to do construction

  5. Emma Lee Says:

    Once again geometry is used in construction; surprise, surprise.

  6. Luke Volz Says:

    This makes sense. A lot of geometry is used in multiple construction jobs.

    Wow!! I never knew constuction workers would use alot of geometry in their job!!!
