What is the Smallest Possible Value of x
Answer: (2) 4
The length of a side must be less than the sum of the other two sides.
Then, X < (10 + 6.5)
X < 16.5 cm
The length of the side must be greater than the difference between of the other two sides.
Then, X > (10 – 6.5 )
= X > 3.5
Therefore, we have two limits for the value of X .
Then, 3.5 < X < 16.5
Then, the value of X will be between 3.5 and 16.5.
the value of the X = 4 cm.
Hence, the answer is (2) 4.
