Could someone explain what they mean by “median relative to the hypotenuse”

Hi!

Let’s assume a right angled triangle with perpendicular equals 10m and the let the base be 24m.

using Pythagoras theorem we have H^2=B^2 + H^2

H= 26cm.

Median is a line drawn from the vertex of a right angle equals half the length of the triangle’s hypotenuse here the term relative i think is a issue with translation maybe and it simply means Median=H/2=13cm.

Hope it helps:)
