I'd suggest that you actually draw a rectangle and inside it draw a diagonal. What shape is formed by the diagonal and the two legs (made up by the length and width of the rectangle)?|dw:1450149775449:dw|

So how would I go about finding the length without an equation?

you use the pythagorean theorem.... \[a ^{2}+b ^{2}= c ^{2}\]

since no numeric values are given for the lengths, just solve the Pythagorean Theorem equation given you by RAM231 for D, the length of the diagonal.
