1. ## Diagonal distance??

Hey There,
I have a problem, which I am having trouble figuring out.

A rectangular dining room is 6.5 m long, 4.75 m wide and 2.45 m high. What is the distance from a corner on the floor to the opposite corner at the ceiling???
So its from the bottom corner to the top corner diagonally.

Using the pythagorean theroem.
How do I compute this, show all work please, thanks.
Joanne

1. Calculate the length of the diagonal d (in green) of the floor using the right triangle with the legs w and l.

2. Calculate the length of the diagonal of the room D (in red) using the right triangle with the legs d and h.

Thank you, I was not sure how to go about it, but now I do.
