A framed print measures 36 by 22 in. If the print is enclosed by a 2-inch matting, Evaluate the length of the diagonal of the print? Round to the nearest tenth. See Example.

a. If a framed print is enclosed by a 2-inch matting, the print is 4 in less in length and height. Thus, the picture is 32 in by 18 in. These measurements along with the diagonal form a right triangle. Using the Pythagorean theorem, solve for the diagonal. 32^{2} + 18^{2} = c^{2}; 1,024 + 324 = c^{2}; 1,348 = c^{2}; 36.7 = c. If you select b, you reduced the print 2 inches less than the frame in length and height rather than 4 inches.
