Pythagorean Theorem

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

8^2 + 8^2 = c^2

64 + 64 = c^2

11.3 = c

Use the Pythagorean Theorem.

What do you get for the measurement of a side of the square?

I manage to get X^2+X^2=144

Right so far.

2x^2 = 144

x^2 = 72

x = 8.4852813

Each side = 8.4852813 feet

A = s^2

A = 72 square feet
