The bottom triangle and left triangle are congruent

90 degrees

Both their hypotenuse are sides of an equilateral triangle

left side of left triangle = bottom side of bottom triangle = 1

So, if the bottom right segment is x

The top left segment would be x as well

The top right segment would be 1 - x

Oh yes makes sense.

Thanks a lot
