Marking out softball diamonds can take a lot of time.

Each corner has to be a right angle.

Jan has a clever plan. She knows that the distance between home plate and second base is 25.86 metres.

If she can use that to work out the distance between bases properly marking the diamonds will be quick and easy.

How can Jan use the distance between home plate and second base to work out the distance between bases (n)?

How can she use this distance to make sure each angle of the diamond is 90◦?
