The right triangle has hypotenuse c = 27 cm. How large sections cuts height hc=3 cm on the hypotenuse c?

Correct answer:

c1 =  26.66 cm
c2 =  0.34 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

c1+c2=27 c1c2=32   x227x+9=0  a=1;b=27;c=9 D=b24ac=272419=693 D>0  x1,2=2ab±D=227±693=227±377 x1,2=13.5±13.162447 x1=26.662446581 x2=0.337553419   Factored form of the equation:  (x26.662446581)(x0.337553419)=0  c1=26.66 cm
