Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the Length of the rectangle.

\(\sf a^2 + b^2 = c^2\) 'a' and 'b' are the two legs, in this case the length and the width, and 'c' is the hypotenuse, in this case the diagonal of the rectangle.

so its \[5^2+b^2=8^2\] ??

Now solve for 'b'

how do i solve for b again?
iGreen
  • iGreen
Then after you find 'b', multiply it to 5 to get the Area.
iGreen
  • iGreen
\(\sf 5^2 + b^2 = 8^2\) Subtract 5^2 to both sides: \(\sf b^2 = 8^2-5^2\) Find the square root of both sides: \(\sf b = \sqrt{8^2-5^2}\)
