Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0With that little piece of knowledge, you can now calculate the length of the sides of this square garden which you intend to fence. 48 = 4s. divide both sides by 4. You realize that what you do to an equation on one side you must do to the other otherwise you make the equation unequal. So dividing both sides by 4 gives you s=12 ft. It is 12 foot square. Now you can calculate the length of the diagonal.
