    I don't really understand the x degree inside of the circle

    Well, it appears both lines are tangent to circle, so if each line is at a 90degree with the radius

    Yeah, I'm sorry, I don't know if there is enough information. I assume that in your accompanying text it discusses theorems related to tangent and radial lines in circles and the respective angles

    If you can find out the inner angle, then you'll be able to find x
