at the beginning of a performance, two synchronized swimmers start at opposite cornners of a rectangular pool that is 50 meters long and 25 meters wide. They swim toward each other along a diagonal and meet hafeway. To the nearest tenth of a meter, how far from their starting points do the swimmers meet?

Length of the diagonal  =  

 

√ [ 50^2 + 25^2 ]  =  √  [ 2500 + 625]   =  √3125   ≈  55.9  m

 

And half of this ≈  27.95m  =   28 m
