Altitude ratios of two tetrahedra

Let's say that you have two tetrahedra, call them A and B.
Tetrahedron A has an altitude of 1H. You insert tetrahedron B into A an rotate it so that all of its Vertices are pointing in the opposite director of the vertices of A, and all of its faces are parallel to the vertices of A. You find that the distance between one face of A is 4.6 H away from the parallel face of B.
What is the altitude of B? Thanks in advance.
