Eight distances (Posted on 2014-12-10) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Within the top left-hand quarter of a square(its side an integer below 40 cm) I marked two points, each of which was distant an integral number of cm, not only from each side of the square but also from both the top left-hand corner and the bottom right-hand corner of the square.

What size was a side of this square?

Based on Enigma problem (New Scientist 2010)

Hints/Tips Side is an ODD integer | Comment 3 of 4 |

To eliminate redundant solutions please insert the word odd
to make the remark in the brackets "its side an ODD  integer below 40 cm."

Tnx, Charlie
