## anonymous 4 years ago The distance from one corner to the opposite corner of a square playground is 96 ft. To the nearest foot, how long is each side of the playground?

Diagonal of a square is $$\sqrt{2} \times$$ side.

So it should be $$48 \sqrt{2}$$ ft

4. anonymous

$= 67.8823 \approx 68 ft$

5. anonymous

Then x equals roughly 68ft per side, huh?

6. anonymous

Yes that's right.

7. anonymous

so to the nearest foot would be 68ft
