what? @aajugdar
ok, here il tell you a shortcut : height of altitude = geometric mean of hypotenuse segments.
\(h = \sqrt{5*26}\)
I got 11.4? @ganeshie8
@aajugdar what do you mean see? you posted that a few mins ago
yeah i am looking too :D
okay haha i was confused @aajugdar
:) thats right
yeah he is right thats final answer

idk now the time ran up on the assignment
