Find the length of the altitude drawn to the hypotenuse. I got to the end and got 105 but do I square root it or leave it as is? Figure is below.

    I think you would square root it, not very sure.

    use similar triangles 15 /altitude = altitude / 7 altitude ^ 2 = 7*15 = 105 altitude = sqrt 105
