### Re: 10 second questions

Hi bobbym,

The solutions #5155 and #5156 are correct. Marvelous!

#5157. What is the ratio of the area of a square to that of the square drawn on its diagonal?

#5158. What is the ratio of the areas of two squares, one having its diagonal double than the other?

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.
