Finding the length of the median.
The length of the median drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle is represented by the expression 3x - 7, while the length of the hypotenuse is represented by 5x - 4. Find the length of the median.

The length of the median is half of the length of hypotenuse.
Then,

$3x-7=\frac{5x-4}{2}$

Now find x.
