    \[\rm sin \rm \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }~~~~ \cos \theta = \frac{ adjacent }{ hypotenuse } ~~\tan \theta = \frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\] you need opposite side of the given angle and given side is adjacent so apply tan function to find value of x

    \[\huge\rm tan(35 ) = \frac{ \rm opposite }{ adjacent }\] opposite = x adjacent = 12 substitute and then sovle for x
