A square corner 
20100211 

From Trevor: I am building a new house and wish to set it out on site with the use of
profile boards and string. I want to be certain it is correct in terms of
squareness. I have a vague idea that the square on the hypotenuse should
be equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
I get a little lost here and need some help. The building is a rectangle
measuring 40x30 feet to exterior brickwork. I guess that the length
of the hypotenuse should be exactly the square root of the combined
squares of the two sides.
Using the above measurements could you give me calculations from nuts
to soup as to the correct length of the diagonal. And what adjustments
are needed if everthing is not in accord.

The length of a cut 
20040917 

From Florita: My daughhter, who is a 9th grader is attempting to cut a piece of wood after determining the length of the cut for the hypotenuse. These are the measures:
a=4squared, b=6squared.
She determined that c should equal 52. But when she measured the actual piece to be cut, c measured 39.5 inches! Can you offer any insight as to what she is doing wrong? I have suggested that she may be working with an Acute rather than a Right angle . But she insists that it is a Right angle after using a "framing square". Answered by Claude Tardif.
