    Well, then read the following link: http://marceau.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/53043928/MetricRelationsRightTriangle.pdf It explains all three metric relations when an altitude is dropped from the right angle. Your problem belongs to the first relation "proportional mean theorem". If you still have questions, please post again.
