  2. Use the Pythagorean Theorem. The brace needs to be
    āˆš(48^2 + 64^2) = 16āˆš(3^2 + 4^2) = 16*5 = 80 inches

    You should have recognized this as a scaled-up version of the familiar 3-4-5 right triangle. You can save yourself some calculation by learning a few of the basic Pythagorean triples, such as
    3-4-5, 5-12-13, 8-15-17, 7-24-25
    and their multiples.
