# In the center of town there is a square park with side length 30 ft. If a person walks from one corner of the park to the opposite corner, how far does the person walk? Round to the nearest foot.

**Solution:**

Given, a square park with side length 30ft.

A person walks from one corner to the opposite corner of the park.

We have to find the distance the person walks.

This implies we have to find the diagonal of the square park.

Diagonal of square = √2(side)

Diagonal = √2(30)

= (1.414)(30)

= 42.42 feet

Diagonal = 42 feet.

Therefore, the distance the person walks is 42 feet.

## In the center of town there is a square park with side length 30 ft. If a person walks from one corner of the park to the opposite corner, how far does the person walk? Round to the nearest foot.

**Summary:**

In the center of town there is a square park with side length 30 ft. If a person walks from one corner of the park to the opposite corner, the person walks 42 feet.
