The medians drawn from the vertices of the actue angles of a right triangle are 5 and sq root of 40. What is the length of the hypotenuse.

SO far

I know that you have to split the big triangle into to seperate triangles using the two given medians as hypotenuses for new trianlges. but once i have that i dont know how to solve the problem.I know you have to use pythagorean theorm but how can you when both a squared and b squared are unknown and you only know c squared?

help would be greatly appreciateddd
