Interactive exercise. Assistance may be required. Problem 3:

Minerva is designing a rectangular flowerbed for her backyard. She wants the flowerbed to be 7 feet wide and 24 feet long. Minerva remembered from her Geometry class that if the flowerbed really is a rectangle, then the lengths of the diagonals will be the same, so she decides to measure the diagonals to see if the flowerbed really is a rectangle. How long should each diagonal be?
