hello there i am kinda learning about fourbar linkages, and im trying to find the length relationships of the four links how do i combine these inequalities L1 + L2 < L0 + L3 L0 < L2  L1 + L3 L3 < L2  L1 + L0 to form this L1 + L2  L3 < L0 < L2  L1 + L3 all are different variables, the links have different lengths im kinda dumbfound abt it

Note that the second part of your inequality L0 < L2  L1 + L3 is simply the second equation. So, all you have to show is: L1 + I L2  L3 I < L0 First, if L3 < L2, then I L2  L3 I = L2  L3. And, the inequality holds from looking at the first equation L1 + L2  L3 < L0, hence L1 + I L2  L3 I < L0 (when L3 < L2) If, however, L2 < L3, then I L2  L3 I = L3  L2. And, the inequality holds from the third equation: L3 < L2  L1 + L0 hence L1 + L3  L2 < L0 And that's it.

thanks, i think i got it now i confused myself with the absolute value signs
