Q:

A square garden has sides 50 ft long.You stretch a hose exactly from onecorner of the garden to anothercorner across the garden's diagonal.How long is the hose?​

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:The hose is ~70.71 ft long.Step-by-step explanation:We need to use Pythagorean theorem to figure this out. ( A^2 + B^2 = C^2) So we first need to square 50 two times, since that's the length and height of the garden. This equals 5000. Then we just need to find the root of 5000! This rounds out to about 70.71 ft. Hope I could help! :)
