A square has diagonal length 13 m. What is the side length of the square to the nearest centimeter?

• Geometry -

Pitagorin teorem :

diagonal = sqrt ( a ^ 2 + a ^ 2 )

diagonal = sqrt ( 2 * a ^ 2 )

diagonal = a * sqrt ( 2 )

13 = a * sqrt ( 2 ) Divide both sides by aqrt ( 2 )

13 / sqrt ( 2 ) = a

13 / 1.41421 = a

9.19241131 = a

a = 9.19241131 m

1 m = 100 cm

a = 9.19241131 m = 919.241131 cm

a = 919 cm to the nearest centimeter?
