    It looks like you will need a system of equations. x^2+h^2 = 20^2 y^2+h^2 = 48^2 x+y=52

    y^2-x^2= 1904 and x = 52-y

    law of cosines formated for a side will give you the angles; then sin them :)

    if you substitute 52-y in for x you should be able to solve to y and then x, and finally h. (although you could use sin and cos as well if you know how to use them)
