    there seems to be alot of assumptions wed have to make for that picture to come up with any sort of solutions.

    2x = 11 3y = 15.9 and the side with the 12 on it can either be scaled or determine the similar proportion of the top segment

    you say: 1. 24 2. 6 3. 5.3 4. 7.95 5. 12 id say x=11/2, y=16/3 for starters then the proportion\[\frac{12}{11}=\frac{RS}{11+11/2}\] \[\frac{12(11+11/2)}{11}=RS\] \[12(1+1/2)=RS=18\]

    but someting just doesnt sit right for me in that .... if 2x=11, then RS should equal 24

    uv = 15.9 uw=11 x=11/2 = 5.5 y=5.3 rs=24 sounds good to me
