The two triangles are similar, so their corresponding sides are proportional. That means 4 is to 2 as 4 + 2 is to 6 + x or as an equation, 4/2 = (4+ 2)/(6 + x) Cross multiply and solve for x.

how do i croos multiply? could you five me the solution?

@mathstudent55 wouldnt it be 4/6 not 4/2? Because its 4 over the whole length of the side which is 6? 4+2

You are absolutely correct. Let me do it again. The two triangles are similar, so their corresponding sides are proportional. That means 4 is to 6 as 4 + 2 is to 6 + x or as an equation, 4/6 = (4+ 2)/(6 + x) Cross multiply and solve for x.

Interstingly enough, this simpler proportion also works: 4/2 = 6/x because the segments measuring 2 and x are also in the same ratio as the sides measuring 4 and 6 and the sides measuring 4 + 2 and 6 + x

so should I do 4*6=2*x

\[\huge\frac{ 4 }{ 6 } = \frac{ 6 }{ 6 + x }\]

I got x=3

Now we cross multiply and divide everything by 4 \[\huge4(6 + x) = 36\] \[\huge6 + x = 9\] now find x

both ways give you x=3 so its your choice to see which way you liked better.
