who can solve for X on this math problem

X

Solve for X
The taper is probably 3 1/2" per foot but that is just an assumption and we all know what happens when we assume.
But, if you are going to solicit help for a problem like this the least you could do is to post a decent picture or drawing of the problem. I, for one, can't read most of the dimensions on your picture so I can't, or maybe won't, help you out.

4.54.317=X
0.183=X

The big problem here is that the system is unconstrained, unless one thing are we to assume the two diagonal lines touching the circle are parallel to the two lines describing the top left and bottom left edges?You never learn anything by doing it right.

4.5(1.843+(2X1.237))=Y
4.5(1.843+2.474)=Y
4.54.317=Y
0.183=Y
Then X=4.5Y
X=4.50.183
X=4.317
Sorry for the confusion

not to mention when you go back and calculate the taper it comes out odd.
this can't be solved.
It seams like a typo type of deal, because w is easy to find.Dan S.
