Find the side of the square whose diagonal is `16sqrt(2)` cm.

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

Let the side of square be a

Diagonal of a square is given by `"a"sqrt(2)`

∴ `"a"sqrt(2)` = `16sqrt(2)` cm

∴ a = 16 cm

Therefore the side of the square whose diagonal is `16sqrt(2)` cm is 16 cm

From given figure, In ∆ABC, If AC = 12 cm. then AB =?

Activity: From given figure, In ∆ABC, ∠ABC = 90°, ∠ACB = 30°

∴ ∠BAC = `square`

∴ ∆ABC is 30° – 60° – 90° triangle

∴ In ∆ABC by property of 30° – 60° – 90° triangle.

∴ AB = `1/2` AC and `square` = `sqrt(3)/2` AC

∴ `square` = `1/2 xx 12` and BC = `sqrt(3)/2 xx 12`

∴ `square` = 6 and BC = `6sqrt(3)`
