#### Question

Find the length of diagonal of a square with side 8 cm .

#### Solution

Suppose ABCD is a square of side 8 cm.

Here, segment AC is a diagonal of square ABCD.

In ∆ABC,

l(AC)2 = l(AB)+ l(BC)2               (Pythagoras theorem)

⇒ l(AC)= (8)2 + (8)2

⇒ l(AC)= 64 + 64 = 128

⇒ l(AC) = $\sqrt{128}$ cm

Thus, the length of diagonal of square is $\sqrt{128}$ cm .

Is there an error in this question or solution?
