    Dear mathguy20,

    Here are the steps to solve this problem.

    1) First find the length of BC ; (consider the traingle ABC)

    2) Then find the length BD ; (consider the traingle BDC)

    3) Now you can find the length BE ; (considering the fact that BD=DE)

    4) Find the CE ; (consider the traingle BCE)

    5) Finally considering the traingle CFE you can find X.

    Hope these ideas will help you.
