Welcome to PF.

Your diagram is a little confusing because the visualization of the moment arms is inconsistent.

The red is shown shorter when in fact it's moment arm is longer 3/2 > 4/5.

If it is in equilibrium then 2*4/5 = x*3/2 ==> x = 16/15

I'd go with the numbers as the schematic is merely a visual aid.
