Use similar triangles. Write the ratio of the lengths given and solve for x

8/18 = 10/(10+x) 4/9 = 10/ (10 + x) Cross multiply 4 ( 10 + x ) = 9 * 10 = 90 40 + 4x = 90 4x = 50 x = 50/4 = 12.5

Ok this a right triangle that is a special kind. It is called a 30-60-90 triangle. Because its angles are 30,60 and 90. There is a relationship between the lengths of the sides of the triangle.
