    Imagine that the slant line is the x-axis and shift the triangle "up" 2 so that A is at the origin. Now try it...

    U see what I mean? Now if you drop the perpendiculars from B and C, they will 5 and 4

    I guess Now, using cosine rule and sine rule will give x and y.

    First 2 equations give s^2-t^2 = 9 Second and third give s^2 -2st =24 t = (s^2-24)/2s substitute in s^2-t^2 gives a quadratic in s etc.

    Thanx @shubhamsrg AND yes there was a mistake in cosine law. Now, that gives the length 5.2915
