The angle will still be the same, no matter what size, so z is still 34 degrees.

Notice that 9 and 5 are the only measurements that stay.

To find the proportion (idk if thats the right word) between the two triangles, we make a fraction, \(\frac{5}{9}\). We do this so that we can figure out the lengths of each side by multiplying and/or dividing.

To find y, we multiply 18 by \(\frac{5}{9}\), getting 10, so y is 10.

To find x, we have to __DIVIDE__ 8 by \(\frac{5}{9}\), since unlike y, x is on the left triangle.

8 divided by \(\frac{5}{9}\)is 14.4, so x is 14.4.

So the final answer is:

**x = 14.4**

**y = 10**

**z = 34 degrees**

Correct me if I'm wrong!
