    Would \[\frac{ 100 }{ 240 } = \frac{ 150 }{ x }\]

    however the long leg of the big triangle is 150+100=250 and its base is x

    so knowing the proportions small leg over big leg= small base/ big base

    (100/250) = 240/x (100/250) *(240/1)= 240/x *(240/1) multiply 240 over 1 to get 1/600=1/x Just flip both sides 600=x
