1. apparently you can't type square root, I'm really sorry those a symbols are supposed to be square root symbols so
9 inches
9 sqrt 3 inches
18 sqrt 2 inches
9 sqrt 2 inches

I'm sorry and thank you in advance!

2. since the diagonal of a square of side s is s√2, a diagonal of length 18 means a side of 18/√2 = 9√2
