The perimeter

The triangle has one side 5 cm long and another 11 cm long. What can be the smallest, and what is the largest perimeter?

Correct answer:

o1 =  22 cm
o2 =  32 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=5 cm b=11 cm  a+b>c 5+11>c 16>c  c1=16  a+c>b 5+c>11 c>6 c2=6  b+c>a 11+c>5 c>6  o1=a+b+c2=5+11+6=22 cm
o2=a+b+c1=5+11+16=32 cm
