If they say both are similar then $\frac{12.5}{2x+1}=\frac{7.5}{3}=\frac{y+5}{4.5}=\frac{10}{4}=\frac{17.5}{14z}$

2. NotSObright Group Title

x=2 y=6.25 z=0.5

Ohh I see. So all I am supposed to do is take the measures of the proportional sides and make proportions out of them and then cross multiply right?
