The length of the pipe is 17 feet. Solution: Joel is laying pipe for a sprinkler system before he plants his lawn. The lawn is a rectangle, 15 feet long and 8 feet wide. He needs to lay a piece of pipe that will run along the diagonal of the lawn. It will divide the area of the lawn into two right triangles. Using Pythagoras' theorem, (15 x 15) + (8 x 8) = the square on the hypotenuse (the diagonal). 225 + 64 = 289. The square root of 289 is 17. (17 x 17 = 289).

The length of a rectangle is 12 in. and the perimeter is 56 in. The width of the rectangle is 16 in.

SOLUTION:
Length of two of the sides = 12 x 2 = 24 in.
Total width of the other two sides = 56 - 24 = 32 in.
Width of one side = 32/2 = 16 in.
