1. A triangle with sides 300, 400 and 500
2. A triangle with sides 300, 400 and 700

  1. 1 as 2 cannot be a triangle.

  2. sum of two sides of a triangle should be greater than the third side.Hence 2 cannot be a triangle

  3. Strictly mathematically speaking, the second one is a "degenerated triangle" (all sides on the same straight line ,since 300+400=700) with area=0.
    First triangle is a nice right angle(orthogonal) triangle . :-)
