x - 1 = 6 y + 1 = 21 ?

it is proportionate to not equal to because the angles are equal but not the sides. You can get the equation $\frac{ 24 }{ 32 }=\frac{ 6 }{ x-1 }$ then you just have to cross multiply and solve.

Ah, okay. Thank you. $\frac{ 24 }{ 32 } = \frac{ 6 }{ x - 1}; 24 = x - 1 = 25; 192$

5. enya.gold

x = 25?

6. jsolon7

x=9 because you get the equation 24x-24=192 then 24x=216 then finally x=9
