The diagonals of a trapezoid are perpendicular and have lengths 8 and 10. Find the length of the median of the trapezoid.
I don't get it... i got as far as the area is 40, and m (median) times the height is 40 as well... please help!

PLEASE HELP geometry trapezoid problem please help  Steve, Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 3:32pm
well, you're almost there.
mh = 40
m = (8+10)/2 = 9
9h=40
h = 40/9

The solution is incorrect. 8 and 10 are the diagonals of the trapezoid, not the sides. The solution is far more complex.
