    i think you should use ratios and proportions... \(\large \frac{2}{10}=\frac{3}{x} \) find x... i'm not sure but this is an educated guess. if i figure out any definite sure answer, i'll let you know

    well according to what i see in the diagram, the ratios should suffice for the solution

    xy is obviously longer than uv in the picture, in your diagram, it looked different so it got me thinking but in your picture, i think the ratios will solve it :) so find x and tell me what u get
