If $ \mathrm{A}, \mathrm{B}, \mathrm{C} $ are three points on a line such that $ \mathrm{AB}=5 \mathrm{~cm}, \mathrm{BC}=3 \mathrm{~cm} $ and $ \mathrm{AC}=8 \mathrm{~cm} $, which one of them lies between the other two?


Given:

\( \mathrm{A}, \mathrm{B}, \mathrm{C} \) are three points on a line such that \( \mathrm{AB}=5 \mathrm{~cm}, \mathrm{BC}=3 \mathrm{~cm} \) and \( \mathrm{AC}=8 \mathrm{~cm} \)

To do:

We have to find which one of them lies between the other two.

Solution:

Here,

$AB + BC=5+3$

$=8\ cm$

$AC=8\ cm$

Therefore, point B lies between points A and C.
