    If we have a triangle with sides a,b,c then

    b-a < c < b+a

    describes the restriction of the length of side c, given sides a and b. This is due to the triangle inequality theorem.

    a = 6

    b = 9

    b-a < c < b+a

    9-6 < c < 9+6

    3 < c < 15

    Answer: The third side is between 3 cm and 15 cm. The third side cannot equal 3 cm, and it also cannot equal 15 cm.
