\because 40 > 20 + 15 = 35
\therefore 40 is not the third side of the triangle
\because 30 < 20 + 15 = 35
\therefore 30 is the third side of the triangle
\because 20 < 20 + 15 = 35
\therefore 20 is the third side of the triangle
\because 15 < 20 + 15 = 35
\therefore 10 is the third side of the triangle
