Need help with a basic math problem, the C = A + B.

I know C is 188, and both A and B are the same length, so I need an equation to figure out A.

188=sqrt(2A), how do I rearrange this equation to get A by it self?

188 / 2 = a
a = sqrt(188 / 2)

(two sides with the same length can still be right-angled)
