If you are given the area of the square, then the length of each side is the square root of the area. If you are given the length of the diagonal of a square, then the lenght of each side is equal to the length of the diagonal divided by the square root of 2. l=sqrt(a) l=d/[sqrt(2)] l=length of side, d=diagonal, a=area, sqrt means square root

Divide the length of the diagonal of a square by 1.4142 (which is the square root of 2) to find the length of a side. Similarly, to find the length of the diagonal of a square, multiply the length of a side by 1.4142.

As a square has right angles, the diagonal forms a right triangle with two of the sides of the square. Therefore use Pythagoras: diagonal² = side² + side² → diagonal² = 2side² → diagonal = side × √2 Therefore to find the length of the diagonal of a square, multiply the side length of a square by the square root of 2.

The diagonal length = 7.07 inches.
