Check whether triangle is valid or not if sides are given
• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 25 Mar, 2021

Given three sides, check whether triangle is valid or not.
Examples:

```Input :  a = 7, b = 10, c = 5
Output : Valid

Input : a = 1 b = 10 c = 12
Output : Invalid```

Approach: A triangle is valid if sum of its two sides is greater than the third side. If three sides are a, b and c, then three conditions should be met.

```1.a + b > c
2.a + c > b
3.b + c > a  ``` ## C++

 `// C++ program to check if three``// sides form a triangle or not``#include``using` `namespace` `std;` `// function to check if three sider``// form a triangle or not``bool` `checkValidity(``int` `a, ``int` `b, ``int` `c)``{``    ``// check condition``    ``if` `(a + b <= c || a + c <= b || b + c <= a)``        ``return` `false``;``    ``else``        ``return` `true``;``}` `// Driver function``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `a = 7, b = 10, c = 5;``    ` `    ``if` `(checkValidity(a, b, c))``        ``cout << ``"Valid"``;``    ``else``        ``cout << ``"Invalid"``;   ``}`
