 Question 468321: 1. what is the height of a 35 inch tv?Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!35 inches is the diagonal. If it's an older TV, the ratio of height to width is 3 to 4. That makes a 3, 4, 5 right angle. The height is 3/5 of the diagonal (3/5)*35 = 21 inches. -------------------- If it's a newer model, the ratio is 16 to 9, making the diagonal messier So 35:sqrt(337)::ht:9 ht = 35*9/sqrt(337) ht =~ 17.16 inches --------------------- The newer 16:9 TVs have a smaller viewing area than the older ones with the same diagonal. The pictures are sharper, tho.
