1.
Sample answer: A pair of scissors illustrates the
SSS inequality. As the distance between the tips
of the scissors decreases, the angle between the
blades decreases, allowing the blades to cut.
2.
The SSS Inequality Theorem compares the angle
between two sides of a triangle for which the two
sides are congruent and the third side is different.
The SSS Postulate states that two triangles that
have three sides congruent are congruent.
