    I'll go through this step by step for you ..

    It's a right angled triangle

    so ..

    19x + 3 is the same length as 8x + 14

    which means that ..

    19x + 3 = 8x + 14

    subtract 8x from both sides ..

    19x - 8x + 3 = 8x - 8x + 14

    which gives you ..

    11x + 3 = 14

    now subtract 3 from both sides ..

    11x + 3 - 3 = 14 - 3

    giving you ..

    11x = 11

    which means that ..

    x = 1
