Measure the distance of the diagonal (from one corner to the opposite corner) of the screen on your computer monitor to the nearest tenth of a centimeter or sixteenth of an inch. Measure the height of the screen along the vertical as well. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the width along the horizontal In your post, include the length of the diagonal, the width, and the calculations needed to determine the horizontal length of your computer monitor. After you have calculated the approximate length using Pythagorean theorem, use a measuring device to measure the horizontal length of your monitor. Was your measurement close? Why might the measurements not be exactly the same?
Typing hint: Type Pythagorean theorem as a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Do not use special graphs or symbols because they will not appear when pasted to the discussion board.

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

diaganol: 15 3/4
height: 9 3/4
horizontal: 13

I am uncertain on how to work this problem. I know the equation is

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

a^2 + 9 3/4 ^2 = 15 3/4 ^2 (I don't know how to complete the problem from this stand point)

The Pythagorean theorem: The sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c). Why do you need that to figure the horizontal lengh? this is .
CIRCUMLOCUTION - a roundabout or indirect way of speaking; the use of more words than necessary to express an idea. So , what is it you really need to know?

### How can I square it up so that the glass fits properly?

Measure corner to corner diagonally. The numbers will match when you have it squared up.
If you need to square up a 2 piece desk, measure the desk, loosen the joint and add spacers as needed. Retighten the joint.

### How do I known if the front frame rails are bent

The checking of the frame rails for accident damage can be done easily. First place the vehicle over a flat clean cement floor. Select points on the frame rails such as front ends---suspension points---brackets attached to the rails on both sides and rear ends of rail. Make sure the points selected have a corresponding point on the other rail. Using a plumb bob drop the selected point to the floor and make a cross on the floor at that point. . Repeat the process for each selected point. The more points the easier to find where the rails are bent and by how much. Move the car out of the way and using a tape measure the distance diagonally between same points.-- EI-- from left hand front end to right hand rear end. Repeat the measuring from the opposite corners By measuring from one point on one side to the second point on the other side you will develop a continually crossing pattern of measurements. So in the end if you selected 4 points per side you will have 3 sets diagonal measurements on the floor or more . As you measure write the dimension on the floor. Now if there is a difference of more than 1/4 "(6mm)between any set of diagonals you will see if the rails are bent and if they are bent right or left or bowed in the middle. By measuring the heights of the corresponding points and recording them you will see if the rails are bent up or down. I understand it is a bit long winded but you will be in effect transposing the measurements of the points of the rails onto the floor so that the differences can be measured without the problems of items interfering with straight line distances.

### Overall size

The screen is measured diagonally from one top corner to the opposite bottom corner--hence 13 inch.

If you want the screen width measure it.

### Hi, are tvs that are described as 42" actually 42" , i am thinking of buying the lg42lh3000, but the technical data, says its 1028mm wide, this isnt 42" or am i being a bit thick! you can be honest with...

That measurement, is measured on the DIAGONAL corner, to corner distance. It's NOT the actual measured width of the Viewing Screen. IT is only 1028mm Wide, but from corner to corner it's going to be..1070mm or 42 inches

### Each diagonal of a square measures 1 inch. if the diagonals bisect each other and segments formed measure x/3 and 1 - x/6. what are the exact measures of the segments Enter Problem: Help Math...

If the diangonal of a square is 1, either side opposite the diagonal is equal to the sin of 45 degrees. sin 45=.70710678. The segments formed by the bisection of the diagonals would be one half the length of the diagonal which would be .5 x 1 = .5. Or you could take the sin of .70710678x.70710678=.5 for the bisectors.
(if I understand what you are asking.)
