Two side lengths of a triangle are 17 and 11. What is the longest possible integer length of the third side of the triangle?
Triangle side length rule says the sum of any two sides must be greater than the remaining third side
17 +11 > b b<28
11+b > 17 b > 6
17 + b > 11 any 'b' so 6 < b < 28 means the largest b would be 27
