I assume your triangle is RTS, and you say it is equilateral.

Which of course means all sides are equal, but you say

RT = 6 and RS = 9

Did you mean isosceles ?

Anyway, in both equilateral and isosceles triangles, the altitude from T to the base would right-bisect the base.

So if the base = 9 , then RX = 4.5

Check your typing and the question again.
