Lemma 21.46.6. Let $(\mathcal{C}, \mathcal{O})$ be a ringed site. Let $(K, L, M, f, g, h)$ be a distinguished triangle in $D(\mathcal{O})$. Let $a, b \in \mathbf{Z}$.

1. If $K$ has tor-amplitude in $[a + 1, b + 1]$ and $L$ has tor-amplitude in $[a, b]$ then $M$ has tor-amplitude in $[a, b]$.

2. If $K$ and $M$ have tor-amplitude in $[a, b]$, then $L$ has tor-amplitude in $[a, b]$.

3. If $L$ has tor-amplitude in $[a + 1, b + 1]$ and $M$ has tor-amplitude in $[a, b]$, then $K$ has tor-amplitude in $[a + 1, b + 1]$.

Proof. Omitted. Hint: This just follows from the long exact cohomology sequence associated to a distinguished triangle and the fact that $- \otimes _\mathcal {O}^{\mathbf{L}} \mathcal{F}$ preserves distinguished triangles. The easiest one to prove is (2) and the others follow from it by translation. $\square$
