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. $\implies {12+x \over 16 + x + 6} = {12 \over 16}$

Or alternatively you can use the fact that other people seem willing to do your homework for you, and you can continue to do poorly in math.

use popak equation cross and mutipfly, continue solve

Refer to the figure below to find the measure. Given: If CR = 4, RA = 6, and RS = 10, find AB
