If there is a piece of square land, which is 7450 miles squared and you wanted to cross from the very left to the very right in a straight line how many miles would you travel?
How long would it take to travel this route at 80mph ?
Thanks alot

1. Geometrically you want to know the length of the diagonal of a square.
Let s denote the length of one side of the square and A the area of the square.
Then
According to Pythagorean theorem the length of the diagonal is:
2. Since the speed is the traveling time is:
For confirmation only: I got t = 1 h 31 min 33 s
