Corollary 2 to Theorem 7-3• Corollary The altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle separates the hypotenuse If… C so that the length of each leg of the triangle is the geometric mean of the length of the hypotenuse and the length A D B of the segment of the hypotenuse adjacent to the leg. Then… Example AB = AC and AB = CB AC AD CB DB 1 4 Hypotenuse 4 2 Leg = 2 2 1 Segment of hypotenuse adjacent to leg
