    Permimeter of Square Inside a Right Triangle

    ABC is a right triangle.
    Point E is equidistant from AB.
    What is the perimeter of the square inside ABC??

    This another scalene problem i am having trouble with.
    everything ive tried is fruitless. ive tried separating the triangle but since it isn't isosceles i cant seem to get any correct measurements.
    Any suggestions or guidance?

    have you considered equal ratios between similar triangles?
