A mouse has made holes in opposite corners of a rectangular kitchen. The width of the kitchen is 8 feet and the distance between the mouse's holes is 17 feet. What is the length of the kitchen?

We have a right triangle with  17  = the hypotenuse  and 8  = one leg

 

The other leg is the length  =  sqrt  [ 17^2 - 8^2]   =  sqrt [ 289 - 64 ]  = sqrt [225]  =  15 (ft)
