Q:
# A square is cut in half on the diagonal, creating two equal triangles. each triangle has an area of 0.32 square units. what is the side length, in units, of the original square?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:0.8Step-by-step explanation:Let's say s is the side length of the square. When the square is cut diagonally, each triangle has a base of s and a height of s.Area of a triangle is:A = ½ bhGiven A = 0.32, b = s, and h = s:0.32 = ½ (s)(s)0.64 = s²s = 0.8The side length of the square is 0.8 units.
