The diagonal of a rectangle measures 13 cm. The width of the rectangle is 5 cm.
so the diagonal makes a right angle triangle so we have two sides one side is unkown
so using pythogores theorm
width^2 + length^2 = diagonal^2
5^2 + length^2 = 13^2
25 + length^2 = 169
length^2= 169 - 25
length^2 = 144
length = 12
