#### Question

If diagonal of a rectangle is 26 cm and one side is 24 cm, find the other side.

#### Solution

Suppose ABCD is a rectangle. Here, segment AC is a diagonal and segment AD is one side of the rectangle ABCD.

l(AC) = 26 cm and l(AD) = 24 cm.

In right ∆ACD,

l(AC)2 = l(AD)+ l(CD)2               (Pythagoras theorem)

⇒ l(CD)= (26)2 − (24)2

⇒ l(CD)= 676 − 576 = 100

⇒ l(CD) =  sqrt(100) = 10 cm

Thus, the other side of the rectangle is 10 cm.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
