If I have a parallelogram labeled XYZW, and its diagonals XZ and YW intersect at point A. How can I find XA if YA=t, WA=2t-6, and XZ=3A?

    If XZ is a diagonal, and A is the midpoint of XZ, maybe you meant XZ = 3t rather than XZ = 3A ???

    Keep in mind that WA = YA, so t = 2t - 6, and t must be 6.  Then perhaps XZ = 18, which would mean XA = 9.

    Only if I guessed your typographical error correctly.
