We have a rectangle. In rectangle opposite sides are equal and each interior angle is right angle. Let one pair of opposite side is be length and other be breadth.Further let rectangle be known as ABCD,vertices are taken in order.The AC and BD are the diagonals of rectangle ABCD.
By def triangle ABC is right angle. By application of Pythagoras theorem ,now can determine measurement of AC
since AC is distance (Length) so we will go for positive square root
Also diagonals of rectangle are equal so AC=BD.
