ok so we know that the quilt is being made using squares... which measure 5in on each side... basically one square will look like this dw:1336502631039:dw do you agree?

ok good, after drawing a diagonal, we'll have this dw:1336502741454:dw we'll have two right angled triangles... right?

ok good, according to pythagoras, if we have a right angled triangle, this formula holds \(\huge a^2=b^2+c^2 \) dw:1336503014472:dw my "C" is little but u can see it :) are we okay so far?

ok good, we are going to apply this to the question. we know that each side of the square is 5in, hence, dw:1336503197307:dw now looking at this, we know what "b" and "c" are, they're both 5, so we have to solve for "a" ....
