Q:
# A rectangular field has a diagonal of 360 feet. One of the side of the field is 160 feet long. What is the perimeter of the field? Enter your answer, rounded to the nearest hundredth, in the box.

Accepted Solution

A:

We need to calculate the other triangle side.

Using the Pythagorean Theorem,

3rd side^2 = 360^2 -160^2

3rd side^2 = 129,600 - 25,600

3rd side^2 = 104,000

3rd side = 322.49

Perimeter = 2 * (160 + 322.49)

Perimeter = 964.98 feet

Using the Pythagorean Theorem,

3rd side^2 = 360^2 -160^2

3rd side^2 = 129,600 - 25,600

3rd side^2 = 104,000

3rd side = 322.49

Perimeter = 2 * (160 + 322.49)

Perimeter = 964.98 feet
