    x = 4 (again assuming that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram as it appears to be visually).

    Please don't argue this point on this particular problem. This problem is giving x as a variable representing length. It can't be negative.

    if we assume it's a parallelogram then 3x=12 and 8= 2x it has to satisfy the other equation also 3x+12=8+2x can't be satisfied simultaneously

    Why does 3x+12 = 8 + 2x??? Who said the diagonals of the parallelogram are equal???
