Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When a right triangle (the big one in your drawing) has the altitude drawn to its hypotenuse, then the two new small triangles are similar to each other and to the original large triangle. The means the lengths of corresponding sides of all three triangles are in proportion.
