The right triangle altitude theorem - practice problems - last pageThe altitude to the hypotenuse is the geometric mean of the two segments of the hypotenuse. Each leg of the right triangle is the mean proportional of the hypotenuse and the segment of the hypotenuse that is adjacent to the leg.
Also known as a geometric mean theorem. The geometric mean theorem is a special case of the chord theorem.

- Free space in the garden
The grandfather's free space in the garden was in the shape of a rectangular triangle of 5 meters and 12 meters in length. He decided to divide it into two parts and the height of the hypotenuse. The smaller part creates a rock garden, for the larger sows
- Squares above sides
Two squares are constructed on two sides of the ABC triangle. The square area above the BC side is 25 cm². The height vc to the side AB is 3 cm long. The heel P of height vc divides the AB side in a 2: 1 ratio. The AC side is longer than the BC side. Calc
- Circumscribed 6568
In a right triangle ABC with a right angle at the vertex C, it is given: a = 17cm, Vc = 8 cm. Calculate the length of the sides b, c, its area S, the perimeter o, the length of the radii of the circles of the triangle circumscribed by R and inscribed r an
- Isosceles triangle 9
There is an isosceles triangle ABC where AB= AC. The perimeter is 64cm, and the altitude is 24cm. Find the area of the isosceles triangle.
- Goat and circles
What is the radius of a circle centered on the other circle, and is the intersection of the two circles equal to half the area of the first circle? This task is the mathematical expression of the role of agriculture. The farmer has circular land on which
- MIT 1869
You know the length of hypotenuse parts 9 and 16, at which the hypotenuse of a right triangle is divided by a height. The task is to find the lengths of the sides of the triangle and the length of line x. This assignment was part of the Massachusetts Inst
After the parachute is opened, the paratrooper drops to the ground at a constant speed of 2 m/s, with the sidewinding at a steady speed of 1.5 m/s. Find: a) the magnitude of its resulting velocity concerning the ground, b) the distance of his land from a
- Euclid theorems
Calculate the sides of a right triangle if leg a = 6 cm and a section of the hypotenuse, which is located adjacent to the second leg b, is 5cm.
- The bomber
An aircraft flying at an altitude of 1260 m. From what distance in front of the target must a parachute load be dropped from an airplane? The load slopes at a speed of 5.6 m/s and moves in the direction of movement at 12 m/s. What is the direct distance o
- An observer
An observer standing west of the tower sees its top at an altitude angle of 45 degrees. After moving 50 meters to the south, he sees its top at an altitude angle of 30 degrees. How tall is the tower?
In the circle with a radius, 7.5 cm is constructed of two parallel chords whose lengths are 9 cm and 12 cm. Calculate the distance of these chords (if there are two possible solutions, write both).
