Wait. I'm confused. Isn't AB supposed to be 3? And isn't that supposed to be where X is? This is all quite strange.

Hang on. What subject is this? I mean I know it's a form of math, but is there like a specific name for it? Is it a certain type of geometry?

Well that should help for my solution hunting.

I think I might get it now. So the ratio means that whatever AB is, BC is 3.67 times bigger.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
So I think what you need to do is divide 33 by 3.67. Whatever the result of that is is X.
