How do you find the third altitude of a triangle with the two other altitudes? I have the altitudes 12 and 14.

  1. Do you know the area, or some other information about the triangle?
    With just two altitudes, an infinite number of triangles can be formed.

    This was the question before that you answered with more information. "Two altitudes of a triangle have lengths 12 and 14. What is the longest possible length of the third altitude, if it is a positive integer?" I don't get it.
