A rectangle 2

A rectangle has a diagonal length of 74cm. Its side lengths are in ratio 5:3. Find its side lengths.

Correct result:

a =  63.454 cm
b =  38.072 cm

Solution:

d=74 cm a:b=5:3  d2=a2+b2 b=35a d2=a2+(35a)2  a2=d2/(1+3252)  a=d1+3252=741+3252=63.454 cmd=74 \ \text{cm} \ \\ a:b=5:3 \ \\ \ \\ d^2=a^2 + b^2 \ \\ b=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 } a \ \\ d^2=a^2 + (\dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 } a)^2 \ \\ \ \\ a^2=d^2 / (1 + \dfrac{ 3^2 }{ 5^2 } ) \ \\ \ \\ a=\dfrac{ d }{ \sqrt{ 1 + \dfrac{ 3^2 }{ 5^2 } } }=\dfrac{ 74 }{ \sqrt{ 1 + \dfrac{ 3^2 }{ 5^2 } } }=63.454 \ \text{cm}
b=35 a=35 63.4545=38.0724=38.072 cm  k=a/b=63.4545/38.0724531.6667  d2=a2+b2=63.45452+38.0724273.9994 cmb=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 } \cdot \ a=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 } \cdot \ 63.4545=38.0724=38.072 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ k=a/b=63.4545/38.0724 \doteq \dfrac{ 5 }{ 3 } \doteq 1.6667 \ \\ \ \\ d_{2}=\sqrt{ a^2+b^2 }=\sqrt{ 63.4545^2+38.0724^2 } \doteq 73.9994 \ \text{cm}
