Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first we begin by finding the length of the diagonal of the bottom rectangle we use Pythagoras again that diagonal is a hypethenus if you can see it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so heypethenus = sqrt{3^2+4^2}=sqrt{9+16}=sqrt{25}=5 inch

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we look at the triangle from by the the metal rod we have the long side is 11 inch and the short one we just found is 5 the rod is like a hypotenuse in that triangle so the length of the rod = sqrt{5^2+11^2}=sqrt{25+121}=sqrt{146}
