No its not homework, but my teacher (pre-cal) couldn't figure it out and neither can I, so see if you can!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can't draw it so i'll explain it, pretty simple.

You have a square (ABCD) with a random point closest to the bottom-left corner of the square (it doesn't really matter which corner). The point is 3 units from A (the closest corner), 7 units from B (the point directly above A), and 5 units from D (the point directly right of A)

Keep in mind you don't no any angles except of course the 90 degrees of each corner.

Solve for - any side length!
