If you meant thet were simialar then

4/11 = x/(x+8)

4(x+8) = 11x

4x +32 = 11x

7x = 32

x = 32/7

I assume the triangles are similar not congruent.

4/11 = x/(x+8)

4(x+8) = 11x

4x +32 = 11x

7x = 32

x = 32/7

i assume you mean similar... write proportions based on similarity:

x/(x+8) = 4/11

11x = 4x + 32

7x = 32

x = 32/7
