Height of the room

Given the floor area of a room as 24 feet by 48 feet and space diagonal of a room as 56 feet. Can you find the height of the room?

Result

c =  16 ft

Solution:

a=24 ft b=48 ft d=56 ft  d2=a2+b2+c2  c=d2a2b2=562242482=16 fta=24 \ \text{ft} \ \\ b=48 \ \text{ft} \ \\ d=56 \ \text{ft} \ \\ \ \\ d^2=a^2+b^2+c^2 \ \\ \ \\ c=\sqrt{ d^2-a^2-b^2 }=\sqrt{ 56^2-24^2-48^2 }=16 \ \text{ft}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
