We're comparing angle measurements within the same triangle, and we know the side measurements. So we're using Converse hinge here, um, looking at the measurement of angle QPR. That would be this angle here, and the measurement of angle to R P is this angle here, and we noticed that Q p r. The side opposite of that angle is eight and Q r p. The side opposite is 5.1. So the Converse hinge there, um, says the side. The angle opposite of the longest side is gonna be your longest angle greatest angle, So Q P R is greater than the measurement of q R P.
