    A diagonal as long as a straight line?

    My guess would be always

    as in... when we're talking about a square.

    as in, when is the diagonal of a square as long as a side of the square?

    if so, I change my position to never, or, when 1=Sqrt(2)

    I don't like your cryptic replies

    I usually don't do well outside the box

    Im takin your criptic message to point me toward the perimeter

    Let a side length =A
    perimeter P=4A
    Diagonal = x

    x= sqrt(2)A
    4x/sqr(2) = 4A=P

    so when x = sqrt(2)P/4

    edit: This seems non-sensical as well, and is obviously not outside the box far enough.
    🙁

    When is a diagonal *not* a straight line?

    As the question is posed, "always" is a very good answer.

    so a squared plus b squared equals c squared.
    well heres the obvious cheating answer...a=0 b=10 c=10
    and if b=c (or a=c) then b squared= c squared. so then if b=c in this equation a squared plus b squared=c squared we can take out "b squared= c squared" because they are equal. so we are left with a squared=0. so a=0 is the only way i can think of
