(d1^2 + d2^2) = 2(l1^2 + l2^2)

Substitute d1 = 16, l1 = 18, l2 = 14

Hi gmatblast

Thanks for the formula. I derived it after you posted it. It is indeed very helpful.

Yes, nice formula Gmatblast. I learned this forumla from Stoylar and recall him giving this formula in a post long ago. You can figure out this formula actually but it is quite time consuming

Paul,

It is not that time consuming. May be 1 minute to derive the formula. Give it a shot..

Oh well, I thought it was because I never tried it. It wasn't after all. But it's sure nice to have it off hand
