Give me logic to determine if the 3 sides represent a side of a triangle.

The logic is given by the triangle inequality.

Given two side lengths a and b, the 3rd side c must satisfy

|a-b| <= c <= a+b

Given two side lengths a and b, the 3rd side c must satisfy

|a-b| <= c <= a+b

thnks fun2code,

I just found on internet.

It is a series of three inequalities: a+b>c, a+c>b, and b+c>a, if all are true then its a triangle.
