Find the length of the line segment x?
Poliline perfectly fits in the right angled triangle, as at the picture.
Right angle is on the top.

Given that is a right angle, the hypotenuse would be along the diameter of a circle and the corner would be on that circle.
I haven't fully proven the case but I get a diameter of about 14.8 with a midpoint of 7.4 would result in a circle that goes through the corner of the right triangle.
Given we have 5 and 8, the missing distance would be ~1.8 units.

You'll need to know the angle between 6 and 7 then you can use the cosine rule to find length of x.
No right angle can be seen at the top.
