Hi Imelda,

in problem 11

we can see the line measuring 5 bisects both sides and this makes it a midsegment.

The Triangle Midsegment Theorem states that 

A midsegment connecting two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and is half as long.

Therefore, 

x= 2(5) = 10

in problem 12

since the line measuring 5 bisects one of the sides and its length is half the line marked 10. we can conclude that it is a midsegment and it follows that it bisects the third side. Hence,

x = 4


P.S If you like my answer please mark it as best. Thanks and have a lovely day
