Maria looked at the architectural plan of a room with four walls in which the walls meet each other at right angles. The length of one wall in the plan is 13 inches. The length of the diagonal of the floor of the room in the plan is approximately 15.26 inches.
Is the room in the shape of a square? Explain how you determined your answer. Show all your work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1438650336026:dw\[15.26^{2} = 13^{2} +b^{2} ~~~~~232.87 = 169 + b ^{2}~~~~~232.87=169 + 63.87~~~~~15.26=13^{2}+7.99^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i dont think it is a square because a square has all equal sides. this means that the missing length should be 13, not 7.99
