Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use ratios to solve 4/4.8 and 5/6 I'd use the five:six 5/6 = 2/x You can crossmultiply to solve. You can also use scaling factors to solve. 5x=6 4x=4.8 Once you solve for x you can multiply 2 times your x and you will have your missing side of the larger triangle.
