Did you read the posting guidelines? If so where are your efforts?

Hint: In a rectangle we know the diagonals have equal lengths.

i did read them, and there is no diagram to the question, so i did not know how to start the problem, but your hint helped and i now know that the given statements for MT and AH need to be set equal to each other.

You, the student, need to make and label the diagram. Please show some effort while posting. Thanks.

Ah then you know that \(\displaystyle 3x+2=2x-12\). Go for it.
