**Reiny**, Saturday, November 26, 2011 at 11:11amextend each of the 3 and 3 sides until they meet.

I see similar triangles.

Let the 3 unit side be extended by x units

then x/10 = (x+3)/12

12x = 10x + 30

2x = 30

x = 15

Do the same thing for the other side by letting that extension be y units

( I got y = 10)
