Which of the following statements are true (T) and which are false (F)?
Question:

Which of the following statements are true (T) and which are false (F)?

(i) Sum of the three sides of a triangle is less than the sum of its three altitudes.

(ii) Sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than twice the median drown to the third side

(iii) Sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side.

(iv) Difference of any two sides of a triangle is equal to the third side.

(v) If two angles of a triangle are unequal, then the greater angle has the larger side opposite to it

(vi) Of all the line segments that can be drawn from a point to a line not containing it, the perpendicular line segment is the shortest one.

Solution:

(i) False (F)

Reason: Sum of these sides of a triangle is greater than sum of its three altitudes

(ii) True (T)

(iii) True (T)

(iv) False (F)

Reason: The difference of any two sides of a triangle is less than third side

(v) True (T)

Reason: The side opposite to greater angle is longer and smaller angle is shorter in a triangle

(vi) True (T).

Reason: The perpendicular distance is the shortest distance from a point to a line not containing it.
