Right Δ

A right triangle has the length of one leg 11 cm and length of the hypotenuse 61 cm. Calculate the height of the triangle.

Result

vc =  10.8 cm

Solution:

a=11 cm c=61 cm b=c2a2=60 cm  S=S 12cvc=12ab cvc=ab cvc=avc=acb=116160=10.8  cm a = 11 \ cm \ \\ c = 61 \ cm \ \\ b = \sqrt{ c^2-a^2 } = 60 \ cm \ \\ \ \\ S = S \ \\ \dfrac{1}{2} c v_c = \dfrac{1}{2} a b \ \\ c v_c = a b \ \\ c v_c = a v_c = \dfrac{a}{c} b = \dfrac{ 11}{ 61} \cdot 60 = 10.8 \ \text{ cm }
