# A triangle has corners A, B, and C located at #(4 ,7 )#, #(3 ,5 )#, and #(2 ,1 )#, respectively. What are the endpoints and length of the altitude going through corner C?

Length of altitude

Slope of AB =

Slope of AD perpendicular to AB = m_(CF) = - (1/m_(AB) = - (1/2)#

Equation of line altitude AD is

Equation of line segment AB is

Solving Eqns (1) & (2) will give the coordinates of base of altitude F.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
