Hello :) So this problem I'm having trouble with, I have no idea how to solve it! I don't need an answer, just how to do it. But either works :)

 

The area of a square garden is 50 squared meters. How long is the diagonal?

The side of the square  = sqrt(50)m

 

The diagonal of any sqare =  sqrt(2)  * tthe side length

 

I'll let you take it from there, saseflower...!!!!

 

 

cool cool cool

well  the area of a square is length* length = L2

 

so    

\(L^2=50\\ L=\sqrt{50}\;\;metres \\\)

 

Now draw the square and use the Pythagorean Theorum to find the diagonal.

 

\(diagonal^2=(\sqrt{50})^2+(\sqrt{50})^2\\ diagonal^2=50+50\\ diagonal^2=100\\ diagonal=10\;metres\\\)

A2+b2=c2

502+502=c2

2500+2500=c2

 5000=c2

/5000=c

70.7106781186547524=c
