#### Solution

In a right-angled triangle, the length of the median on its hypotenuse is half the length of the hypotenuse.

Since the length of the hypotenuse =15 unit

We know that,

∴ Length of Median on its hypotenuse = `1/2xx"the length of the hypotenuse"`

`= 1/2xx15`

`= 7.5 "units"`

Therefore, the length of the median of its hypotenuse is 7.5 units.
