    From the image you can get two equations, namely: y-4 = x+5 3x+5 = x+12 I suggest solving for x in the bottom one and subbing it into eqn 1

    okay, now that we know x = 7 y-4 = x+5 y - 4 = 7 + 5 y-4 = 12

    The question states to find the values of the variable as well as the side lengths, these extra values are the side lengths that need to be found.
