The crease is the diagonal of the original rectangle, which by the Pythagorean Theorem equals Squareroot of (6^2 + 4^2) = Squareroot of (36 + 16) = Squareroot of (52).

ans 2(square root of 13) or about 6.666cm use the Pythagorean Theorem ( a squared + b squared = c squared) hence 6 squared or 6 x 6 + 4 squared or 4 x 4 = 36 + 16 = 52 ; c squared = 52 c = the square root of 52 or 2 times the square root of 13 ; which is about 6. 66.....

4.83 centimeters. (approximately) The person who answered first misunderstood the question, I think.Source(s): I couldn't come up with a formula, so I just did it and measured it.
