If a square region has area x, what is the length of its diagonal in terms of x ?

A) \(\sqrt{x}\)

B) \(\sqrt{2x}\)

C) \(2 \sqrt{x}\)

D) \(x \sqrt{2}\)

E) \(2x\)


Are of a square = \(\frac{diagonal^2}{2}\).

Given: \(\frac{diagonal^2}{2}=x\);

\(diagonal=\sqrt{2x}\).

Answer: B.


Hello Bunuel :) isnt the formula of the area of square \(a^2\) where \(a\) is side of square ? :?

is it another formula ? \(\frac{diagonal^2}{2}\). does diagonal of square mean \(a\sqrt{2}\) :? cause you write so \(diagonal^2\)

have a great monday :)

Yes, the area of a square could also be found by \(\frac{diagonal^2}{2}\).
