The formula for the length of the space diagonal of a rectangular prism is \(\sqrt{L^2+H^2+W^2}\)

where L = Length, H = Height and W = Width

\(\sqrt{3^2+4^2+12^2}\)

Hence option C = 13 is the answer.

Ans: C

Three sides are given for the given figure and we know that for space diagonal the formula for calculating the value is = sqrt of (a^2+b^2+c^2)
by this ans is 13

Ans C

diagonal^2 = length^2 + width^2 + height^2

d^2 = 3^2 + 4^2 + 12^2

d^2 = 9 + 16 + 144

d^2 = 169

d = 13

Answer: C
