Ans. 7 ft.

Book's explanation: 〖25〗^2-〖24〗^2=625-576=49=7

Where did they get 24 from? Thank you for your help!

**Steve**, Friday, November 30, 2012 at 1:02pmI can't picture the deck. Top? Bottom?

All I can say is that 24 = 28-4, the difference between top and bottom.

But the 7^2+24^2=25^2 seems to be for the legs and diagonal of a triangle. Oh, well, maybe you have a diagram in front of you.
