Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let x = the side of the square. The diagonal of the square would be \[x \sqrt{2}\] so it would be \[\sqrt{40}\sqrt{2}\] which is \[\sqrt{80} = 4\sqrt{5}\] You can also use the Pytha. Theorem \[\sqrt{\sqrt{40}^2 + \sqrt{40}^2} = \sqrt{80} = 4\sqrt{5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just stick with the pytha. theorem then do you know how to get the side? if the area is 40 then the square root of that would be one of the sides. so you now you have a isosceles right triangle with to equal sides sqrt(40) just use the pytha theorem, like i showed up there and you get the answer. does it make sense?
