In the diagram, $AB,$ $BC,$ $CD,$ $DE,$ $EF,$ $FG,$ $GH,$ and $HK$ all have length $4,$ and all angles are right angles, with the exception of the angles at $D$ and $F.$

If a perpendicular EM is drawn from E to DF (a close-up is shown below), and if x is the length of EM then what is X^2

The relationship EM^2=DM*MF is very helpful...

DF=$$4\sqrt{2}$$, so $$DM=2\sqrt{2}$$ and $$MF=2\sqrt{2}$$.

$$EM^2=2\sqrt2*2\sqrt{2}$$

$$EM^2=8$$
