**Wayne**, Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 12:42pmIs this written correctly? Usually the height is longer than the width! Again, draw a picture. Another right triangle.

Let x = height; let 2x = width. Using Pythagorean Theorem:

hyp^2 = x^2 + (2x)^2

hyp^2 = x^2 + 4x^2

hyp^2 = 5x^2

take square root of each side:

hyp = x * sqrt(5)
