a = 33        b = 65       

Side  'c'  should be longer then 56 but shorter then 72.89718787  laugh

If these  two  measures  were  the shortest sides of an acute triangle.....then  the third side  would  have to be less than √[33^2  +  65^2 ]  ≈  72.89

 

But  if  the longest side of  the  triangle was 65.....the other side would have to be greater than √[65^2 - 33^2]  = 56
