Hypotenuse 72524

We know the height of the hypotenuse h = 4cm and the hypotenuse c = 19cm in a right triangle. How to calculate the segments of legs - sections on the hypotenuse c1, c2

Correct answer:

c1 =  18.1168 cm
c2 =  0.8832 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

v=4 cm c=19 cm  v2=c1 c2  v2=c1 (cc1)  v2=x(cx)  42=x (19x) x219x+16=0  a=1;b=19;c=16 D=b24ac=1924116=297 D>0  x1,2=2ab±D=219±297=219±333 x1,2=9.5±8.616843969807 x1=18.116843969807 x2=0.88315603019296   Factored form of the equation:  (x18.116843969807)(x0.88315603019296)=0  c1=x1=18.1168=18.1168 cm

Our quadratic equation calculator calculates it.

c2=cc1=1918.11680.8832 cm  Verifying Solution:   v2=c1 c2=18.1168 0.8832=4 cm
