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)

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
