I know the base and the height, and I know the difference between the lengths of the other two sides. How would I calculate the lengths of those two sides?

e = abs(sqrt((a - x)2 + (b - y)2) - sqrt((c - x)2 + (d - y)2))
How can I solve for y if all other variables are known.
Hope that makes it clearer. I assumed a trigonometric solution was the way to go.
