## Main Question or Discussion Point

How to determine the X coordinate of the red point if i know the Y coordinate and the angle between the adjacent side and the hypotenuse in the formed right triangle(see the image)? I don't know the length of the hypotenuse and the adjacent side of the triangle, i know only the angle between the adjacent side and the hypotenuse and the length of the opposite side(the Y coordinate of the red point). Let's say that Y is 40(i.e. the length of the opposite side) and the angle is 35 degrees. How to determine the X coordinate? Or in other words the length of the adjacent side in the triangle. I asked this on stackoverflow.com but the answer i got wasn't helpful at all. It's very simple question, my native language is not english but i think it's pretty clear what i'm asking.
