Hi, I have learnt pythagoras theorem in school and I am given this assignment (attached). Can someone help? It is best to keep to basic methods because I have not learnt much yet :|
Thanks a lot for your time!
if I understand the problem and the attached sketch correctly then you cut off isosceles right triangles from a rectangle.
If and only if so:
1. The area of an isosceles right triangle is the half of a square, so no Pythagorean theorem needed.
2. Without any lengthes of the rectangle your problem cann't be solved.
