"You now have 2 right triangles,
1 with hypotenuse of 2, the other with hypotenuse of 11.
Use pythagorean theorem to get the unknown length of the
rectangle. "

How do you do this step? You have one rt triangle whose hypotenuse is 2 and another with hypotenuse 11 and they share a common leg.  How does this tell you about the total of their non-common legs?
