In this lesson our instructor talks about the geometric mean. First she talks about the geometric mean and similar triangles. Then she discusses geometric mean altitude and geometric mean leg. Four complete extra example videos round up this lesson.
Geometric Mean: The geometric mean between two positive numbers a and b is x, where
Similar Triangles: If the altitude is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to its hypotenuse, then the two triangles formed are similar to the given triangle and to each other
The measures of the altitude drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to its hypotenuse is the geometric mean between the measures of the two segments of the hypotenuse
