If you have four sticks, you can make a whole ton of different quadrilaterals, because the angles between the sticks can change. But, if you have three sticks, they will make only one triangle. Those angles can’t change, because if they do, the sticks won’t come together anymore. So, a triangle is very resistant to deformation, which is another way of saying it’s very strong.
