    Answer: Length of fence along the diagonal is 28.3 feet.

    Explanation:

    Since we have given that

    The Blackburn family has a square field ,

    Area of square = 40000 ft square

    As we know the formula,

    \text{ Area of square}=Side\times Side\\\\40000=Side^2\\\\\sqrt{40000}=Side\\\\200\ ft=Side

    But Blackburn wants to put a fence diagonally through the field ,

    As we know the formula for “Diagonal of side” i.e.

    \text{ Diagonal of square}=\sqrt{2}Side\\\\\text{ Diagonal of square}=20\sqrt{2}\\\\So,\\\\\text{Length of fence along the diagonal}=20\times 1.41=28.3\ ft

    Hence, length of fence along the diagonal is 28.3 feet.
