AM is a median of a triangle ABC. Is AB + BC + CA > 2 AM? (Consider the sides of triangles ∆ABM and ∆AMC.)
Let us consider Δ ABM,
⇒ AB + BM > AM ….. [equation 1]
Now, consider the other triangle Δ ACM
⇒ AC + CM > AM … [equation 2]
By adding equation  and , we get,
AB + BM + AC + CM > AM + AM
From the figure we can observe that, BC = BM + CM
Therefore, AB + BC + AC > 2 AM
Hence, the given expression is true.
AM is a median of a triangle ABC. Is AB + BC + CA > 2 AM?
