The right triangle altitude theorem + expression of a variable from the formula - math problemsThe 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. Geometric mean theorem is a special case of the chord theorem.

- Right triangle - ratio
The lengths of the legs of the right triangle ABC are in ratio b = 2: 3. The hypotenuse is 10 cm long. Calculate the lengths of the legs of that triangle.
- Free space in the garden
The grandfather's free space in the garden was in the shape of a rectangular triangle with 5 meters and 12 meters in length. He decided to divide it into two parts and the height of the hypotenuse. For the smaller part creates a rock garden, for the large
- 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
