A jogger running around a rectangular park takes a shortcut back to her car by jogging from one corner of the park to the diagonally opposite corner. If the park is 57 yards by 76 yards, how far is the shortcut?

The shortcut forms the hypotenuse of a right triangle with 57 and 76 as legs....so....   sqrt ( 57^2 + 76^2)  = 95 yards
