Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since this is a rectangle, we know the diagnols bisect each other. i.e., 5x7 = 2x 1 solve for x here and to get the length of the diagnol, plug x into 2(2x1). and that will be your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.25x7 = 2x 1 subtract 2x from both sides 5x  2x  7 = 2x  2x  1 3x  7 = 1 add 7 to both sides 3x  7 + 7 = 1 + 7 3x = 6 x = 2
