Let the diagonals meet at a point \(E\), and let \(EA=a, EB=b, EC=c, ED=d\)

Applying PT, we get

\(a^{2}+b^{2}=20^{2} \rightarrow Eq.1\)

\(b^{2}+c^{2}=70^{2} \rightarrow Eq.2\)

\(c^{2}+d^{2}=90^{2} \rightarrow Eq.3\)

Eq.3 - Eq.2

\(d^{2}-b^{2}=90^{2} -70^{2}\rightarrow Eq.4\)

Eq.1 + Eq.4

\(a^{2}+d^{2}=90^{2} -70^{2}+20^{2}\)

\( \Rightarrow a^{2}+d^{2}=3600=AD^{2}\)

\( \Rightarrow AD=60\)
