Assume the side of the square to be \(x.\)

Then \(PX\) = \(18-x\), \(XY\) = \(x\) , \(PS\) = \(18\) and \(SR\) = \(12.\)

\(\Delta PXY \sim \Delta PSR.\)

=> \(\frac{PX}{PS} = \frac{XY}{SR}\) => \(\frac{18-x}{18} = \frac{x}{12}\). => \(x = 7.2\) => \(x^{2} = 51.84\) Rohit Camfar · 4 months, 2 weeks ago
