Find the following ratio.
The ratio of diagonal of a square to its side, if the length of side is 7 cm.

#### Solution

Side of the square = 7 cm
∴ Length of diagonal of the square = √2 × Side of the square = 7√2 cm
Length of diagonal of the square : Side of the square = 7√2 cm : 7 cm = (7√2)/ 7 = (√2)/1 = (√2) : 1
Thus, the ratio of diagonal of the square to its side is √2 : 1.
