Hint:
QR = (MN + OP)/2
x+12 = (17 + 5x  14)/2
solve for x

Yeah but then what do you do? :)

x+12 = (17 + 5x  14)/2
2(x+12) = 17 + 5x  14
2(x+12) = 5x + 3
2x + 24 = 5x + 3
I'll let you finish up

so then do you do,
7x divided by 21? which equals 3? :)

more like
2x + 24 = 5x + 3
24 = 5x + 3  2x
24 = 3x + 3
24  3 = 3x
21 = 3x
3x = 21
x = ??
