# Identify the combination of angle measures that could form a triangle

Pick one of the choices

1. 25°, 65°, and 90°

2. 45°, 65°, and 75°

3. 40°, 55°, and 95°

4. 30°, 75°, and 85°

## Identify the combination of angle measures that could form a triangle.

I NEED ANSERS FOR THE WHOLE TEST. im bad at math so plz give me the RIGHT ANWERS! ( cuz some of you guys be lying and thats not cool at all; people are failing cuz of you idiots!!)

## I need help with the whole test!!!!!

## The combination of angle measures that could form a triangle is the one where the sum of any two angles is greater than the third angle.

Using this rule, the only combination of angle measures that could form a triangle is:

2. 45°, 65°, and 75°

Because:

45° + 65° = 110° > 75°

45° + 75° = 120° > 65°

65° + 75° = 140° > 45°

## wrong!!!

## To identify the combination of angle measures that could form a triangle, we need to remember the triangle inequality theorem. According to the theorem, the sum of the measures of any two angles of a triangle must be greater than the measure of the third angle.

Now, let's check each option to see if it satisfies this condition:

1. In the first option, we have angles measuring 25°, 65°, and 90°. Adding the measures of the first two angles gives us 25° + 65° = 90°, which is equal to the third angle. Therefore, this combination does not form a triangle.

2. In the second option, we have angles measuring 45°, 65°, and 75°. Adding the measures of the first two angles gives us 45° + 65° = 110°, which is greater than the measure of the third angle (75°). This combination does satisfy the triangle inequality theorem and could form a triangle.

3. In the third option, we have angles measuring 40°, 55°, and 95°. Adding the measures of the first two angles gives us 40° + 55° = 95°, which is equal to the third angle. Therefore, this combination does not form a triangle.

4. In the fourth option, we have angles measuring 30°, 75°, and 85°. Adding the measures of the first two angles gives us 30° + 75° = 105°, which is greater than the measure of the third angle (85°). This combination does satisfy the triangle inequality theorem and could form a triangle.

Based on the analysis above, the combination of angle measures that could form a triangle is option 2: 45°, 65°, and 75°.
