Suppose that there is a right triangle ABC such that the legs AB and AC have lengths 4sqrt2 and 2 respectively. What is the length of the median BM?
We can use the Pythagorean Theorem, here
BM = sqt [ (4sqrt(2) ^2 + 1^2 ] = sqrt ( 32 + 1 ) = sqrt (33) ≈ 5.74

CPhill's answer is drawing criticism but it is CORRECT.
Thanks Chris :)
