Problem 45

The arithmetic mean between two numbers $r$ and $s$ is defined to be $\frac{r+s}{2}.$
a. $\overline{C M}$ is the median and $\overline{C H}$ is the altitude to the hypotenuse of right $\triangle A B C$ . Show that $C M$ is the arithmetic mean between $A H$ and $B H,$ and that $C H$ is the geometric mean between $A H$ and $B H .$ Then use the diagram to show that the arithmetic mean is greater than the geometric mean.
b. Show algebraically that the arithmetic mean between two different numbers $r$ and $s$ is greater than the geometric mean. (Hint: The geometric mean is $\sqrt{r s} .$ Work backward from $\frac{r+s}{2}>\sqrt{r s}$ to $(r-s)^{2}>0$ and then reverse the steps.)
