Determine the dimensions of the parking lot if it measures 500 ft diagonally. length = x + 100 feet width = x feet I will set it up and you can finish. The diagonal length = 500 feet Use the Pythegorean Theorem. (x)^2 + (x + 100)^2 = (500)^2 When you find x, plug your answer for x to find the length and width. Can you take it from here? If not, write back. Answer by csteadman(2)   (Show Source):
