In the right-angled triangle (ABC), the height divides CD and the hypotenuse AB in the ratio 3: 2. Calculate the relationship(Ratio) between height and hypotenuse exactly, as simple as possible

We have that

 

AD/DC  = DC/DB

 

3/DC = DC/2     simplify

 

6  = DC^2      take the square root of both sides

 

√6  = DC

 

Ratio between height and hypotenuse  =

 

√6 / 5
