Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well the triangle is irrelevant in this case. if i know the diagonal of the square i can find its sides Let x be length of side of square: x^2 + x^2 = 20^2 2x^2 = 400 x^2 = 200 x = sqrt(200) = 10sqrt(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1?? No, its using pythagorean theorem a^2 +b^2 = c^2 x = 10sqrt(2)
