Answer:

#color(indigo)("Length of side " c = sqrt (4 + 16 - (16/sqrt2)) ~~ 8.69 " Units"#

Explanation:

#Given : a = 2, b = 4, hat C = pi/4#

To find #"Length of side c"#

Applying Law of Cosines,

#c = sqrt(a^2 + b^2 - (2 a b cos C))#

#c = sqrt(2^2 + 4^2 - (2 * 2 * 4 * cos (pi/4)))#

#color(indigo)(c = sqrt (4 + 16 - (16/sqrt2)) ~~ 8.69#
