The triangle inequality states that for any triangle, the sum of the lengths of any two sides must be greater than the length of the remaining side and the reverse triangle inequality states that for any triangle, any side of a triangle is greater than the difference between the other two sides.

So, the third side of the given triangle has length (l) between
and the correct answer is (C)=19

Hope these help!!!
