    Since it is given that the triangles are similar you can set up a ratio-proportion equation:|dw:1444507446322:dw|

    Saying it in words would be like: "x is to 20 as 2 is to 10|dw:1444507733570:dw|

    After getting 10x = 40 You would divide both sides by 10, that would get you the value of x.
