Triangle with sides 5, 9, x yields 5 + 9 > x, so x < 14.

This is a quadrilateral problem, quad = 34, 10, 18, 10. We're being asked to solve for a half-diagonal of the quad constrained to an integer.

The same again. Any two sides of any triangle add up to more than the third side.

Two triangles (5, 9, x) and (5, x, 17). Hence 5 + 9 > x i.e. x<14 and 5 + x > 17 i.e. x> 12. By hypothesis (x an integer) x=13.
