Is the diagonal of a square equal to its sides?
A square is a closed two-dimensional figure with four sides and four corners. The length of all four sides is equal and parallel to each other.
Answer: No, the diagonal of a square is not equal to its sides.
The diagonal of a square is calculated by using the formula: Diagonal of Square (d) = √2 × s, Here 's' is the side of the square.
The following image shows a square ABCD with diagonals, AC and BD
The diagonal formula is calculated by using the Pythagoras Theorem.
d2 = √(s2 + s2)
= √2 × s
So, Diagonal of Square (d) = √2 × s
