The length of the longest piece of a string that can be stretched straight in a rectangular room whose dimensions are 10, 13 and 8 units are ______.

Answer :

√333

Explanation:

The longest string that can be stretched straight inside a rectangular room is going to be the diagonal of the room.

Length of diagonal of a rectangular room of length ‘l’, breadth ‘w’ and height ‘h’ is given by –

∴ longest piece of string that can be stretched =

= √(100+169+64)

= √333
