Answer:

8 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

The diagram is attached below.

Note that the values are different but the diagram is similar. In this case,

Hypotenuse =17ft

Adjacent = 15²

Required

Opposite side

To get the feet of landscape edging would be required to outline the edge of the bed, we will use the Pythagoras theorem as shown;

Hyp² = Opp²+Adj²

Opp² = Hyp²-Adj²

l² = 17²-15²

l² = 289-225

l² = 64

l = √64

l = 8feet

Hence the feet of landscape edging would be required to outline the edge of the bed is 8 feet
