Unformatted text preview: e are 120° left for ∠A and ∠C together and, also ∠A > ∠ C, then ∠A must contain more than half of 120° and ∠C must contain less than half of 120°. This makes ∠A the largest angle of the triangle. The sides in order from largest to smallest are BC, AC, AB. (D) ∠ABC = ∠ABD as they are both right angles. If ∠1 > ∠4, then ∠2 will be less than ∠3 because we are subtracting unequal quantities (∠1 and ∠4) from equal quantities (∠ABC and ∠ABD). (D) The sum of any two sides (always try the shortest two) must be greater than the third side. 2. (C) 2. 3. 4. (E) (A) 3. –.4x < 4 Multiply by 10 to remove decimals.

2 x > −5 5 x>− 2 6. (B) If two sides of a triangle are equal, the angles opposite them are equal. Therefore ∠C = ∠B. Since ∠1 > ∠B, ∠1 > ∠C. (A) The sum of any two sides (always try the shortest two) must be greater than the third side. (C) 2. (C) If unequal quantities are subtracted from equal quantities, the differences are unequal in the opposite order. 7. 8. (−) p < q
3. m=n m− p> n−q (A) Since ∠3 > ∠2 and ∠1 = ∠2, ∠3 > ∠1. If two angles of a triangle are unequal, the sides opposite these angles are unequal, with the larger side opposite the larger angle. Therefore, AB > BD. (D) Since ∠1 > ∠2 and ∠2 > ∠3, ∠1 > ∠3. In triangle ACD side AD is larger than side AC, since AD is opposite the larger angle. (C)
