    Use ratio in similar triangles to find x.

    \(\dfrac{small}{big}=\dfrac{small}{big}\) I meant if you put the side of small triangle up, then other sides of the small are up.

    hence, if I make a ratio and let small up, I have ratio is \(\dfrac{10}{12}\)

    Since \(\dfrac{10}{12}\) is a ratio and I put small up, I can put small up again \(\dfrac{4x-2}{4x+3}\)

    and let it = the ratio I made up before \(\dfrac{4x-2}{4x+3}=\dfrac{10}{12}\) and solve for x
