Sure she can....you find the length of the diagonal by the Pythagorean theorem \[diagonal = \sqrt{width^2 + height^2}\] But since we want one of the sides we rearranage this into \[diagonal^2 = width^2 + height^2\] and lets say we're solving for height so \[diagonal^2 - width^2 = + height^2\] written correctly \[height = \sqrt{diagonal^2 - width^2}\] plug in your diagonal...and your 1 side...and solve for height

Just remember that pythagorean theorem...your question looks like |dw:1371567072779:dw| So you are basically solving a right triangle for one of the sides when you know the hypotenuse and 1 of the other sides

It is roughly 10...if they ask you to approximate it then that would be correct....the correct interpretation would be 10.4 maybe...but regardless...you are correct
