The side will be  40/√2 cm

 

So......the area   =  side^2   =  ( 40/√2)^2  =  1600/ 2  =   800 cm^2

 

 

cool cool cool

The diagnal length of a square is 40 centimeters.

Find the area of the square. 

 

 

\(\begin{array}{rclrcl} A &=& a^2 \quad & \quad a^2+a^2 &=& 40^2 \\ &&\quad & \quad 2a^2 &=& 40^2 \\ &&\quad & \quad a^2 &=& \frac{40^2}{2} \\ &&\quad & \quad \mathbf{ a } & \mathbf{=} & \mathbf{\frac{40}{\sqrt{2}}} \\ A &=& \left(\frac{40}{\sqrt{2}}\right)^2 \\ A &=& \frac{40^2}{ 2 } \\ \mathbf{ A } & \mathbf{=} & \mathbf{800\ cm^2 } \\ \end{array} \)
