Use the Pythagoras therom. let the diagonal be x ⇒54²+72²=x² ⇒8100=x² x=90meters

let the diagonal be a. now, as we know that each angle in a rectangle is right angle. thus we have a right angled triangle. now, we can apply pythagoras theorum. a^2 = 54^2 + 72^2 = 2916 + 5184 =8100 thus, a^2 = 8100 thus, a = 90. Thus the diagonal is 90metres.
