Diagonal Hint for a Rectangular Prism
- Tim Brzezinski
Suppose the dimensions of the box above are 3 ft, 4ft, and 12 ft. Determine the length of the diagonal (segment that connects one corner to its opposite corner) of this prism.
Same question as (1) above: Yet this time assume the dimensions of the box are 5 ft, 6 ft, and 8 ft.
Describe, in your own words, how we can calculate the length of the diagonal of any rectangular prism.
