Abstract

One of the most basic geometric inequalities is the triangle inequality: in every triangle, the length of one side is less than the sum of the two other sides’ lengths. More generally, for any three points A,B,C one has
$$AC+BC\geq AB$$
with equality if and only if C lies on the line segment AB. Many interesting problems can be solved using this simple idea.
