#### Answer:

Draw a diagram to represent your situation.

#### Explanation:

Since we're dealing with a square, all side lengths measure the same thing. Furthermore, the angle B and D are right, therefore allowing us to use pythagorean theorem to find the value of a.

#color(blue)(a^2 + b^2 = c^2#

Where

Since

The diagonal is the Hypotenuse

So, the side lengths measure
