Italian IMAT maths

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

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:)


This makes a lot of sense! thank you:))
