Using the protractor we will figure out if the sidewalk that splits the quad in half meets the corner of the quad on the right side at either a 30, 45, or 60 degree angle. From there we can begin to measure the length of the middle sidewalk to the corner using the string and the yardstick. After determining the angle at which the corner hits, we can then apply geometric formulas to discover the length of the sides

We found that measurement of the side to be 3296.2 inches long. Next

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
