You can't use sin, because you don't know the hypotenuse. Using sin would give you the height, which is 320 meters. You want to find x, which is the distance. For that, you use tangent

You could also use cosine, but only if the hypotenuse was given, which it isn't

You're finding the wrong side. The question asks for the distances directly under the point from the top, which is side x in my drawing.
