We can extend BA past A into a straight line.

There exists a point D such that DA = CA.

Therefore, \angle ADC = \angle ACD because isosceles triangle have two equal angles.

Thus, \angle BCD > \angle BDC by Euclid's fifth common notion.

Since \triangle DCB is a triangle having \angle BCD greater than \angle BDC, this means that BD > BC.

But BD = BA + AD, and AD = AC.

Thus, BA + AC > BC.


A similar argument shows that AC + BC > BA and BA + BC > AC.

If the sum of 2 sides of a triangle is less than the 3rd side,it is not a triangle anymore.If the sum is equal to the 3rd side,there  a pair of congruent line segments will be formed if they are superposed on the each other.
