Question: 134


Based on the triangle above, which statement is true?

A. a > b > c
B. a > c > b
C. b > c > a
D. b > a > c
E. c > b > a

Correct Answer: E


E. Because the angles of a triangle must add up to 180°, the angle in the bottom-left corner must equal 50°. Remember the useful fact that the largest angle is across from the largest side. (The same is true for the smallest angle and the smallest side.)
