set up a proportion between the sides. 9/x = y/6 = 5/4 then solve for each y and x

similar means that corresponding side lengths are proportionate to each other. so set up a proportion between the sides. 5/4, 9/x, y/6 and the ratios are equal to each other because that's basically part of the definition of similar triangles so use what you know (5/4) to solve for your unknowns using basic algebra.
