Nah. Pretty sure its geometry. ArkGoLucky are u sure u arent missing anything in the problem such as a 90 degrees angle?

There is a 90 degree angle where the 75 and 50 meet

Actually, even better would be: \[ \tan(\theta) = \frac{50}{57} \]

Then there is \[ \tan(\theta + 10.5^\circ) = \frac{50+x}{75} \]

Okay all together, without errors \[ \begin{array}{rcl} \tan(\theta) &=& \frac{50}{75} \\ \tan(\theta + 10.5^\circ) &=& \frac{50+x}{75} \end{array} \]
