Dear All,

There is a bigger rectangle dimensions are as below:
BIGGER RECTANGLE
Width: 235.00 cm
Height: 270.00 cm

Now there is a smaller rectangle which is diagonally inside bigger rectangle (above rectangle), dimensions of smaller rectangle is as below:
Width: 33.00 cm
Height: 258.00 cm

My question is the smaller rectangle inside bigger rectangle can rotate in such a way that it becomes perpendicular (stay in straight)? If yes so how we can calculate that it is possible to rotate or not? I think by calculating diagonal of smaller rectangle if it is less than height of bigger rectangle then it can rotate and stand straight.

Sorry if I'm being annoyed or not explaining my question.....

Looking forward for your kind replies.

Regards,
MYEM

your idea is correct and the diagonal of the smaller rectangle is smaller than the height of the larger so it can rotate.

What if the smaller triangle is placed diagonally in such a way that it base creates a right angle triangle base of smaller triangle which will be width of triangle (33 cm) is placed in such a way a right angle triangle is created. I need to know what will be the length of other two sides? I've attached a diagram example for understanding.
