√(7^2 + 11^2) inches which is about 13 inches.

Apply pythagorean theorem

c = √(a^2 + b^2)

c = √(7^2 + 11^2)

c = √(170) or 13 in answer//

Using Pythagoras' theorem the diagonal is about 13 inches

• 9 months ago

sqrt (7^2 + 11^2) = sqrt 170 = 13 inches

Use Pythagoras. The square on the hypotenuse = sum of squares on the other two sides.

In this case, the diagonal is the hypotenuse:

7^2 + 11^2 = h^2

49 + 121 = h^2

170 = h^2

h = 13 inches

7 squared =49;  11 squared = 121;......49+121 = 170;....square root of 170 = 13.0384

Use the Pythagorean theorem: A²+B² = C² where A and B represent the sides of a right triangle, and C represents the diagonal.

7² + 11² = C²

C² = 170

C = √170

C = 13.04

C ≈ 13 inches (rounded)............ANS
