 Question 188306: ok there is a square that has a diagnol through it and the diagnal is x the line makes the square a triangle so then one triangle has sides of 3 and 5 it is asking what does x equal helpAnswer by solver91311(17077)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Sorry, but there is something wrong with your problem statement. Either you have a rectangle rather than a square as you said, or the legs of the triangle are both the same. Since the legs of the triangle are different, I'll presume a rectangle. Since it is a rectangle, the included angle of the two side lengths given must be a right angle, but definition of a rectangle. So the triangle must be a right triangle. Just use the Pythagorean Theorem: So, for this problem c = x, and a and b are 3 and 5, so: You can use a calculator as well as I can, although if your instructor expects the exact representation of the answer, you need to leave it in radical form.
