Approach:
Two triangles are similar if their vertices can be matched up so that corresponding angles are congruent. In this case corresponding sides are proportional.
Calculation:
By similarity,
The lengths of the corresponding sides in the triangles are proportional.
x=a=ca+b
x=a(ca+b)
x=aca+b
Therefore, the required expression is x=aca+b.
Conclusion:
Hence, the required expression is x=aca+b.
