Dear Kimberly:

I believe you are right. A triangle is a two-dimensional figure. The triangle inquality

is said to hold for all triangles with the equality only attained when all three points lie on the same line. However, I would not be surprised if somebody considered this situation as a degenerate triangle. It's all very much a matter of terminology and convenience.

Sincerely,

Alex
