use fact the diagonal of a square is sqrt2 times side length
Yes, that would be great if you were supposed to have a radical in your answer, but your question says to round to the nearest tenth, so use a calculator (or google) to get the square root of 200.
they want answer as decimal so no point in simplifying radical ...
You might want to save @dumbcow's original picture and equation to spend a rainy day in contemplation. If you can remember it the next time you need it, that would be a quicker way of getting to the answer.
well if i needed the simple radical i was headed right :DD
Yes, you simplified the radical very well. And in later classes, you will probably need to leave your answer like that.
Rounded to the nearest tenth is one place after the decimal....
