(Sorry its a little late)

This question asked what the diagnol length of a square (or two triangles right next to each other) was if it had two sides (legs) with the measurments:

a=6m

b=12m

c=?

With c as the diagnol length.

So to discover the length we use the formula a²+b²+c²

And now we begin the long math equation:

a²+b²=c²

6²+12²=c²

(6x6)+(12x12)=c²

36+144=c²

√180=√c²

13.4=c

So now we simply write a simple sentince answer

The diagnol length of the rectangle is 13.4m.

Again I apologize for this post being a little late, and remember that tomorrow is the last day of pythagoras and we need 8 of the math books questions done.
