**calculus help :(**

John has to carry a long piece of wood horizontally around the corner from a hallway of width 2 m to a hallway of width 2.5 m. Assuming that the piece of wood has no width, what is the maximum length of this piece of wood (in meters)? Give answer to two decimal places.

i do not get htis question. any help would be greatly appreciated.

the way i tried it was to just use pythagorums theorum and i got 3.20, but i dotn think thats right.
