    Hi Noelle

    This isn't trig, this is similar triangles. Start by noticing that the triangles are similar to each other by AA (vertically opposite angles, and alternate angles on parallel lines).

    Then we can make the ratio:

    \frac{x}{396}=\frac{235}{296}

    \Rightarrow x = \frac{396 \cdot 235}{296} = 314.39
