In right triangle ABC, angle C = 90 degrees. Median AM has a length of 19, and median BN has a length of 13. What is the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle?


Sorry for posting for a second time! I hope you can forgive me if it's against the rules! 


I have the problem at the very top for homework. I drew a diagram, but I seem to be stuck, and I'm not sure what to do. A little help would be sincerely appreciated. However, please don't post the answer as I would like to figure it out myself. Thank you so much for the help in advance! :)



Sory for the 'c' at the very bottom of the page. I drew the diagram on one of my homework sheets so please disregard that.

By Pythagoreas, AB = sqrt(13^2 + 19^2)/2 = sqrt(530)/2.
