Similarity in Right Triangles Theorem: The altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle divides the triangle into two triangles that are similar to the original triangle and to each other. Knowing this theorem, how can you solve for x and y. x y 4 5
Geometric Mean Proportions in which the means are equal. For any two positive numbers a and b, the geometric mean of a and b is the positive number x such that: a/x = x/b, then x = _____ Ex. Find the geometric mean of 4 and 18.
Corollary to previous theorem Corollary 1: The length of the altitude of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is the geom. Mean of the lengths of the segments of the hypotenuse. Corollary 2: The altitude of the hyp. Of a right triangle separates the hypotenuse so that the length of each leg of the triangle is the geom. mean of the length of the adjacent hyp. segment and the length of the hyp.
