Maria looks at the architectural plan of a four-walled room 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.

    Use the Pythagorean theorem. c^2=a^2+b^2 The hypotenuse is 15.26 and one side is 15. If the remaining side is 15 then it is a square.

    I think you need to solve this with the Pythagorean theorem

    if the floor is a square, then the other side will also be 13 right ?

    Yes because all sides of a square are equal.

    \[13^{2} + 13^{2}\] isn't 15.26 inches then it isn't a square

    yes, however if we assume the floor as a square you get diagonal

    so 13^2 + 13^2 =338 and the square root of 338 is 18.38477631 so it is not a square
