In a certain iscoceles right triangle, the altitude to the hypotenuse has length 4. What is the area of the triangle?

Since it's an isoceles right triangle, the altitude to the hypotenuse is exactly half of the length of the hypotenuse.

The area of a triangle is bh/2, so it would be 4*8/2=16 laugh
