Median

In triangle ABC is given side a=10 cm and median ta= 13 cm and angle gamma 90°.

Calculate length of the median tb.

Result

tb =  11.66 cm

Solution:

b2=ta2(a/2)2 b=132(10/2)2=12 cm  tb2=a2+(b/2)2 tb=102+(12/2)2=11.66 cmb^2 = t_a^2 -(a/2)^2 \ \\ b = \sqrt{ 13^2 - (10/2)^2 } = 12 \ cm \ \\ \ \\ t_b^2 = a^2 + (b/2)^2 \ \\ t_b = \sqrt{ 10^2 + (12/2)^2 } = 11.66 \ \text{cm}
