Can't figure out why my Else statement won't work
I have just started learning to program and am driving myself crazy trying to figure out why a program I wrote won't print (lines 48-50 below). It compiles and runs, it just doesn't print line 49.
The point of the program is to determine if 3 numbers input by a user could represent the sides of a triangle. The code I came up with works if the numbers could be a triangle (it prints "The numbers you entered could represent the sides of a triangle.") but it won't print a message if it's not a triangle. I tried surrounding the IF and ELSE statements with various arrangements of brackets with no luck. I'm sure it's something obvious that I'm overlooking but i don't know what it is. Anyone see where I'm going wrong?
PS- I don't know how to include the box with the scroll bar in my post. Sorry!
