Hi Avni,

I suppose locating orthocenter by finding altitudes ( = 2 Area of triangles / base ) etc. can be done.

By geometric construction H1H2 ~ 7.57188, its component parallel to AB is 7. It can be noted that O, midpoint of DB or H1H2 is the anti-symmetric centre of opposite vertices of parallelogram ABCD.
