I am preparing for the NY State Geometry Regent, and I tried to answer a question given to me. The question reads: In the diagram below of right triangle ABC, an altitude is drawn to
the hypotenuse AB (The line above AB did not copy into this text box). Hopefully the picture will be included in the question.

The options were:

1) C/Z = Z/Y

2) C/A = A/Y

3) X/Z = Z/Y

4) Y/B = B/X

I can't even begin to understand what is going on, let alone the correct answer.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

your question is not complete because you have not indicated the other points that is you have no indicated point x,y,and z.......................................................................................................

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
