The bed of the truck is a rectangle, 4-ft wide and 8-ft long. The diagonal of the rectangle is                                  √ (4² + 8²)                              =  √ (16 + 64)                              =  √ (80)                              =  8.9442... feet                          8.9442... feet =  8 feett  11.33 inches Rounded to the nearest inch:    8 ft  11 in .
