    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...
    Electricians do it until it Hertz!

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

    The long side must be less than twice that of either of the others, otherwise it's just a straight line. ~ Captain Obvious

    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.
    The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.
