i might just be stupid and blind to a really obvious answer, but this just stopped me dead in our end of unit geometry test today:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

prove that in a triangle with two unequal sides the angle opposite the shorter side will be smaller then angle opposite the larger side.

help! so geometry isn't my forté but what don't i see? even just a little hint would be welcome, i'm sure this won't be a challenge for most of you!
