## Answers ( No )

Basically, you just have to find the length of the rectangle that is 27 x 78 feet.

The equation for the diagonal:

d = sqrt(l^2+w^2)

l = 27

w = 78

plug them in and solve

d = sqrt ( (27^2) + (78^2) )

d = sqrt ( 729 + 6084 )

d = sqrt ( 6813 )

d ≈ 82.5

The ball traveled approximately 82.5 feet from one corner of the rectangular 27 x 78 foot field, diagonally to the other side.

Hope this helps
