What we do in life echoes in eternity.

2
7.4 Similarity in Right Triangles LT: To find and use relationships of similar right triangles.

3
Similarity in Right Triangles Theorem 7-3: The altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle divides the triangles into two triangles that are similar to the original triangle and to each other.

4
Geometric Mean Geometric Mean: The number x such that, where a, b, and x are positive numbers Find the geometric mean of 3 and 27. Review: How do we find the arithmetic mean of 3 and 27? Note: Find the geometric mean of 4 and 18. The geometric mean, in mathematics, is a type of mean or average, which indicates the central tendency or typical value of a set of numbers.mathematicsmeanaverage

1.The geometric mean can give a meaningful "average" to compare two companies. 2.The use of a geometric mean "normalizes" the ranges being averaged, so that no range dominates the weighting. 3.The geometric mean applies only to positive numbers. [2] [2] 4.It is also often used for a set of numbers whose values are meant to be multiplied together or are exponential in nature, such as data on the growth of the human population or interest rates of a financial investment.human population Purpose of the Geometric Mean

Altitudes Recall that an altitude is a segment drawn from a vertex that is perpendicular to the opposite of a triangle. Every triangle has three altitudes.
