Finding a Distance X : Triangles and Circles

In the problem I am being asked to solve for the value of X. I have tried setting up right triangles and a mix of right and oblique triangles but have not been able to get the right combination. The value of A is 3.5 and the answer of X is 1.8376. The book gives the answer and we construct the problem.
