    Hi. I was struggling with this question but actually is pretty straightforward.
    You just have to go back to trigonometry. 🤓. You have the angle, the height (opposite side), you are figuring out the adjacent side.
    See videos below for better explanation.

    Same applies everytime you get a triangle and you need to get one of the values.

    I did 24 tan itself = 0.4452

    Then. 9/0.4452 = 20.21
