# Finding a Distance (X) : Triangles and Circles

I would like help in setting up the construction to solve for the value of X in this problem. I have tried to form right triangles to solve it but not been able.

The value of Theta is 52 degrees and the value of X the book gives is 1.1763.

Please see the attached diagram.
