the polygons are similar but not necessarily drawn to scale, find the value of x

bigger polygon has x-3, 8, and 16
smaller has 2.5, 2, 4

1. 6/4 = 4
8/2 = 4
(x-3)/2.5 = 4
x - 3 = 6
x = 9

12. X=13 because the polygons are similar in shape but have a size difference of x4. Since x-3 is the equation and x=13, it would equal 10. And the only thing that 2.5x4 equals is 10. So thirteen IS your answer.
