## Proof of the Triangle Inequality for Real Numbers

The triangle inequality for real numbers is $ |a+b| \le |a| + |b|$ in which $a$ is a variable for a real number, and $b$ is a variable for a real number. Proof: I use four cases. Case 1: If $a=0$ and $b$ is any real number, then the left side of the triangle inequality …
