The legs of a right triangle are 3 and 4 units long. Find the lengths, to the nearest tenth, of the segments into which the bisector of the right angle divides the hypotenuse. (Hint: Draw a picture of the triangle, label one segment of the hypotenuse "x," and solve. Then, move the "x" to the other segment of the hypotenuse and solve.)

Steve,
the angle bisector theorem says that the hypotenuse of length 5 is divided into two parts in the ratio of 3:4, so the lengths would be 15/7 and 20/7

Sapphire aka SNOOKI,
the lengths would be 15/7 and 20/7
