so from the postulate of height we know that the lenght of height squared is equal to the sum of their proiects squared
?
so hence the lenght of altitude will be squarroot(16^2 +64^2)

do you know the height item inside a triangle ?
no.
check it on wikiipedia and will be secure that you will can understanding it sure
so i think that there will be wrote for you understandably
sorry for my english
so you have checked it there please ?
i don't understand it .
my mom just explained it to me . i'm good now :) thanks!!
ok good luck bye
Theorem: If the altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle, the length of the altitude is the geometric mean between the lengths of the segments of the hypotenuse. If a represents the length of the altitude, then the theorem says that 16 is to a as a is to 64. 16/a = a/64 a^2 = 16*64 a = 4* 8 a = 32 -----> Answer -->D) 32
Thanks , I would've gotten that wrong :)
