In PQR , Point S is on QR between Q and R, then the length of segment PS could be any number between?

PQ=9, QR=5, and PR=6.

I'm guessing PS is just a length.

PS is a line segment that splits triangle PQR into two: PQS and PRS.

Triangle PQS has two sides: 1) 9 and 2) 5 - x.
Triangle PRS has two sides: 2) 6 and 2) 5 - x.

PS has to be greater than 9 - (5-x) but less than 9 + (5+x)
PS has to be greater than 6 - (5-x) but less than 6 + (5 +x)

Two extreme cases:

(1) the point S coincides with the point Q, so PQ=PS=9
(2) the point S coincides with the point R, so PR=PS=6

Thus, 6<PS<9

I did Stolyar's way but I think JCohen's way is good too!
