Not sure if I'm doing any of these right. Please correct me, thanks.

The first and third one use the fact that  a line segment drawn parallel to a base splits the sides proportionally

 

So on the first

 

MA  =  46.2 - 14  =  32.2

 

And  we have the following proportion :

 

MA / MN  =  MB / MP

 

32.2 /  46.2  =  MB / 72.6       multiply both sides by 72.6

 

72.6 * 32.2 / 46.2  =  MB   =  x   =  50.6

 

 

 

For the third  one

 

5x + 10 / 10  =  121 / 11

 

5x + 10 / 10  =  11    multiply both sides by 10

 

5x + 10  = 110     subtract 10 from both sides

 

5x  = 100      divide both sides by 5

 

x  = 20     CORRECT!!!

For...the second.....the  bisected apex   angle   GEH sets up the following proportion :

 

GD / GE  =  DH / HE

 

x + 4  / 44.8   =  35 / 56    multiply both sides by 44.8

 

x + 4  =   44.8 * 35  / 56       simplify

 

x + 4  =  28      subtract 4 from both sides

 

x  =  24

 

Check for youself that  GD / GE  = DH / HE   =  5/8

 

Hope that helped......!!!!
