Triangle Side and Angle Inequalities
This video explains why triangle side and angle inequalities are important when solving proofs. In any triangle, the largest angle is opposite the largest side (the opposite side of an angle is the side that does not form the angle). The shortest angle is opposite the shortest side. Therefore, the angle measures can be used to list the size order of the sides. The converse is also true: the lengths of the sides can be used to order the relative size of the angles. (1:54)

Throughout the history of Western literature it has sustained this double reference. Uniquely and insistently, the realm of the tragic encompasses both literature and life.Through careful, critical reading of literary texts, this subject will examine three aspects of the tra

NASA | STEREO Solar Conjunction
Since February 2011, the two spacecraft of NASA's the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory or STEREO mission have been providing scientists with unprecedented views of the far side of the sun.
The spacecraft travel at different speeds. This means that over time, the satellites become increasingly out of sync, appearing from Earth's perspective to drift farther apart, able to observe first the sides and eventually the far side of the sun. Now they are nearing each other once
