12/(12+x)= 16/(16+x+6) (12+x)/12= (22+x)/16 1+(x/12)= 22/16 + (x/16) -6/16 = (x/16)-(x/12) -3/8 = -x/48 x=18

Use the fact that the triangles are similar. Therefore the ratio of the sides of the small triangles will equal the ratio of the sides of the larger triangle. \[\implies {12+x \over 16 + x + 6} = {12 \over 16}\]
