yeahhh...and more in details the area A will be equal to :

A =√(16/2)*(8-7)*(8-5)*(8-4) = √8*1*3*4 = √96

if one side is five inches, a second side is seven inches and the third is four inches would make a scalene triangle.

By the triangle inequality rule, you need the two shortest sides (4 and 5) to add up to more than the longest side (7).

Since 4+5 > 7, we can say these would form a valid triangle.

Answer:

Yes

Of course. Are you confusing a scalene triangle with a right, isosceles, or equilateral one?
