By similar it means they have the same angle and shape, just different lengths.

You know that the ratio of 9:6 = 1.5. So, just multiply the smaller sides by 1.5, or divide the larger ones by 1.5 to get the variables.

Okay, so you see how, 9/6 = 1.5? That's your scale factor, okay?

Now, whats 3.5*1.5? (since you want Z, which is bigger than 3.5, just scaled)
So 3.5*1.5 = Z

Then, for Y, you see how you know that the smaller side similar to y is 6? Then multiply 6*1.5 to get Y.
But, since for X you need the smaller side, you divide, so 12/1.5 = X
