The difference in x dimensions is 3. The difference in y dimensions is 4. The diameter is the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle whose legs are 3 and 4. We know that to be 5, because we know that √(3^2 + 4^2) = √(9+16) = √25 = 5.
The diameter is 5 units.
The smallest set of integers that satisfies the Pythagorean Theorem is {3, 4, 5}. It is useful to remember that.
