ehhh
im not to good with this section...
good, we can use that... do u see any two useful triangles we can use ?
ugh well I know its split up into two but...
\(\triangle CBA \sim \triangle CDB\) lets setup a proportion :- BD/BA = BC/AC h/5 = 12/13 h = ?
i got 4.6?
thats looks right !
okay! now what?
thats it, we are done. thats your length of altitude to hypotenuse !
okay but what do I match it with? like to get one of the options for an answer?
ha here is lil more complete solution, see if u get it. BD/BA = BC/AC h/5 = 12/13 h = 5*12/13 h = ?
yeah no haha ughh
BD/BA = BC/AC h/5 = 12/13 h = 5*12/13 h = 60/13
Ohh okay
Thanks @ganeshie8
np.. yw!
