- 5 squared is 25

9.5 squared is 90.25

add them to get 115.25

Take square root to get 10.7 something

Looks like you are right on. :]

diagonal by calculating the square root of the sum of the square of

both sides (which comes out to 10.735 in this case).

results. I'm getting a HH Cat Tarp because I've come to realize, for

my particular taste, that a poncho on a diagonal doesn't create

much "livable" space underneath in inclement weather. The weight

savings is great, though! I posted pics under "HH with Poncho Tarp."

After I get the MacCat Tarp, I think I'll try using the poncho as a

GI in cold weather.
