The area of a square garden is 128 m². How long is the diagonal?
a. 16 m
b. 4 √2 m
c. 8 √6 m
d. 8 m
Let's calculate the side a of this square. We call A the area of this square
A = a^2 so a = √128 = 8√2
To determine the length of the diagonal d, we use Pythagora's theorem :
d^2=a^2+a^2=2a^2 so d=√2 x a=√2 x 8√2=8 x 2 =16
Answer a is correct.
