What generalization can you make about the length of the third side and the difference of the lengths of the other two sides? (The triangle inequality theorem

lets assume the lengths of the sides of your triangle are A, B and C
if we take the triangular inequality theorem A < B + C
if we subtracted B from both sides we would get
A - B < C
now if we want to generalize this you could say that the length of C (the third side) is larger than the difference between the other two sides (A and B)
