    |dw:1352018124446:dw| the only possible solution is when the segment of length k is perpendicular to the segment of length x.

    I don't quite understand why the only possible solution is when the segment of length k is perpendicular to the segment of length x

    If k is not perpendicular, you will have 2 different values of x. Look at the picture sirm3d drew for you.

    But in the statement of the problem you have only one possible value for x.
