A boxing ring is in the shape of a square, 33 feet on each side. How far apart are the fighters when one is in the center and the other is in the corner.
The diagnol of a square is the line from one corner to the opposite corner (it's the hypotenuse of a right triangle with the same sides as the square)Originally Posted by pashah
therefore we find the distance from one corner to the opposite corner:
but we only want to go half that distance, so we divide that answer by 2:
so the distance from a corner to the center is about 23 feet
