The digital TV has a diagonal of 72 inches. The length of the TV is twice the width of the TV. How much of the wall will still need to be decorated around the TV?Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Area of wall = 9*12 = 108 ft^2 ... width of TV = x Length = 2x ... diagonal of TV = 72 "= 6 ft .. x^2+(2x)^2=6^2 x^2+4x^2=36 5x^2=35 x^2=36/5 x = sqrt(36/5) width = 2.68 ft. length = 2.68*2=5.36 ft Area of TV = 2.68*5.36 =14.36ft^2 .. Area of Wall - Area of TV= 108-14.36 = 93.63 ft^2 m.ananth@hotmail.ca
