Triangle KLM

In the rectangular triangle KLM, where is hypotenuse m (sketch it!). Find the length of the leg k and the height of triangle h if the hypotenuse's segments are known MK = 5cm and ml = 15 cm.

Correct answer:

k =  10 cm
h =  8.6603 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

m1=5 cm m2=15 cm m=m1+m2=5+15=20 cm k=m m1=20 5=10 cm l=m m2=20 15=10 317.3205
h=m1 m2=5 15=5 3=8.6603 cm
