# Triangles

Five sticks with a length of 2,3,4,5,6 cm. How many ways can you choose three sticks to form three sides of a triangle?

Result

n =  7

#### Solution:

$a+b>c \ \\ n_{1}=\dfrac{ 5 \cdot \ 4 \cdot \ 3 }{ 3 \cdot \ 2 }=10 \ \\ \ \\ 5>=2+3 \ \\ 6>=2+3 \ \\ 6>=2+4 \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ n=n_{1}-3=10-3=7$

Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
