    by pythagorus theorem: sqrt(4^2 + 4^2) = sqrt(2*(4^2)) = 4*sqrt(2) => answer B

    if one is allowed to use trignometry, then 9 = x * sin(30 deg) and so x = 9/sin(30) = 9/(1/2) = 18, which leads to answer B.

    B. 4*sqrt(2) (reason : pythagorus' theorem). Note that in a 45-45-90 triangle the arms are equal. Proof is by construction where if we lay 2 such triangles side by side, we construct a square (45+45 = 90 degrees)
