Angle A is 90° and angle D is 90°, so  A  and  D  must be in the same position in the triangle name.

 

Angle B is 56° and angle E is 56°, so  B  and  E  must be in the same position in the triangle name.

 

Angle C is 34° and angle F is 34°, so  C  and  F  must be in the same position in the triangle name.

 

So...

 

Triangle ABC ~ Triangle DEF

 

---------------------------------------

 

△JKL ~ PQR     so....

 

PR / PQ  =  JL / JK

 

n / 6  =  5 / 3

 

n   =   5/3 * 6

 

n   =   10

 

OM   =   n/4   =  10/4   =   2.5
