    The triangles are similar. Corresponding sides are: DE and AC; EF and CB; DF and AB. Corresponding sides have equal ratios. Plug and chug.

    AB=DF so y needs to equal 37.4?

    A ratio is a fraction.

    The ratio of DE to AC is x/12. The ratio of FE to CB is 22 to 10 The ratios are equal so: \[\frac{x}{12}=\frac{22}{10}\] Cross multiply and solve.
