    x^2 + h^2 = c^2 and y^2 +h^2 = b^2, x+y = a x^2-y^2 = c^2-b^2 ......hmm might be better off with Cosine Rule:-(

    87 meets at 6, thats right, but before that we should prove this : 326 is the triangle made by medians

    87 meets at 6 becoz, 47 is congruent to 26, 42 is congruent to 21

    26 is just translation of 47, so they are || one more construction he did is, he translated other median also, the translated medians intersect at 6. (we can prove this, later)

    we knew 5 was the mid point quite earlier..after that assumption, everything fitted..those 2 became congruent //gms and everything else..

    we assumed 36 to be the median..that gave 16 // 27 ..by which it was a //gm,, and thus 5 was the midpoint ( 2 diagnols intersected)
