There is a scalene triangle, none of the angles are equal. The longest length is 10, and there is an altitude drawn down to the longest length. This makes two parts of the longest line. One part is labeled x, and the other part is labeled y (which is longer). Then the left side of the triangle is 5 units long and the right side of the triangle is 8 units long. What are the lengths of x and y?
