How do you find the diagonal of a rectangle whose sides are 20 and 48?
See a solution process below:
The corners of a rectangle are right angles. Therefore, we can find the diagonal of a rectangle using the Pythagorean Theorem where the sides of the rectangle are the sides of the right triangle and the diagonal is the hypotenuse.
The Pythagorean Theorem states:
The diagonal of the rectangle would be 52 units.
