Is this a trick question? Answer: All things being equal, they are all equal. ;) But seriously, if you are trying to figure the hypotenuse to check for squareness, simply measure each diagonal until they are equal and forget about Pythagoras. Then you are all square and equal, opposite and adjacent. Yehaw!
