We use the pythagorean theorem $a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}$ In this question a= 60 and b= 60 $(60)^{2} + (60)^{2} = c^{2}$ $3600 + 3600 = c^{2}$ $7200 = c^{2}$ We take the square root of both sides $\sqrt 7200 = \sqrt (c^{2})$ c = 84.85 Therefore the distance from the second base to home plate is 84.85 ft
