Most everyone knows the Pythagorean Theorem and you can use it to solve this problem. Where is the right triangle? Connect the points (-2,4), (1,0) and (-2,0). One leg measures 3, the other leg measures 4, so the hypotenuse is 5! Five is the length of half
PQ, so the whole line segment PQ is...

The area of a square with sides of 8 ft is 64 square feet. Use the formula for area of a square: A=s*s
Answer is 64 square feet

How do we know which square is larger? ACEF (because its diagonal AE is longer than its side AC, which happens to be the
diagonal of ABCD). Comparing the large square to the small square the ratio of similarity is √2, so the ratios of the areas is √2 squared, 2. So the larger square has twice...
