    \[=\sqrt{5^{2}+ (5\sqrt{2})^{2}}=\sqrt{125}=5\sqrt{5}\]

    i think you're wrong dumbcow :) ?( if a side is 5 on the square, then you can use a² + b² = c² which would be 5² + 5² = 50 or sqrt(50) is your answer... because squares' internal angles are made of 90 degrees each... so you can use that Pythagorean formula
