Find the exact length of the side of a square whose diagonal is 3 feet.

I am having problems understanding how you figure out this problem. Can someone help me? Thanks.

    Draw a square. Draw a diagonal. Let each side length be x.

    The Pythagorean theorem tells you that x^2 + x^2 = 2x^2 = 3^2 = 9
    Solve for x.
