A triangle whose side lengths are whole numbers has one side which measures 25 inches and a perimeter of 60 inches. What is the fewest number of inches that can be the length of one of the remaining sides?
Triangle side length rule says the sum of any two sides must be greater than the remaining third side
60 - 25 = 35 inches for the remaining two sides
25 6 29 any less ( like 5 30 ) would violate the rule ( because 5 + 25 would not be greater than the '30' leg)
