 Question 356827: if 17 and 26 are the lengths of two sides of a triangle what is the range of possible values for the length of the third side?Answer by Edwin McCravy(8909)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!if 17 and 26 are the lengths of two sides of a triangle what is the range of possible values for the length of the third side? ```It has to be between their difference (in absolute value) and their sum. 26-17 < x < 26+17 9 < x < 43 The third side must be longer than 9 and shorter than 43.
