Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm pretty sure I answered a question very similar to this. We have to use Pythagoras Theorem here to verify the shape. dw:1438649421867:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it is a square, then the other side should also be 17. With Pythagoras Theorem, you get this: \[17^2+17^2=18.79^2\] \[289+289\neq353\]
