Since when can we come up with a triangle with two equal sides and the third side equal to the sum of the two?

The config would be three rods aligned in a street line.

I think you could make that work in 4 dimensional space!

Sounds like an isosceles triangle...

Not with a 10 10 20 sides configuration. This sounds like work for our number-crunching guru, Ingenieur

IMHO it really gets interesting when the third side is *more* than the sum of the other two.
Definitely not just a straight line!

I meant to say STRAIGHT line not STREET line.

Then you would have an isosceles triangle.
