a door that is 6 ft by 6inches tall and 36 inches wide. Can apeice of plywood that is 7 ftby 8 ft be carried through the door?

  • Geometry -

    We need to find the diagonal of the door. Use the Pythagorean Theorem.

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    78^2 + 36^2 = c^2
    6,084 + 1,296 = c^2
    7,380 = c^2
    85.9 = c

    If 92 inches is the shortest measurement of the plywood, it won't fit.

  • Geometry -

    it won't fit as you said
