Segment in a triangle

In a triangle ABC with the side/AB/ = 24 cm constructed middle segment/DE/ = 18 cm parallel to the side AB at a distance of 1 cm from AB. Calculate the height of the triangle ABC to side AB.

Correct answer:

h =  4 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

18h = 24(h-1)

18·h = 24·(h-1)

6h = 24

h = 24/6 = 4

h = 4
