    you use the property of similar triangles triangles ABC and CDB are similar

    so DC / m = m / AC and DC = 5 and AC = 19

    similar triangles have the same shape that is corrsponding angles are aequal in the diagram < BDC = <ABC <ACB = <DCB so other angls are also equal

    so going back to the formula 5 /m = m /19 m^2 = 5*19 = 95 so m = sqtt 95 (Option B)
