cos x= y/(distance between sun and moon y= Distance between earth and sun Secant x= Distance between moon and sun/y y*secant x= distance between moon and sun

let me put it this way. The angle x is known and distance y ..So using the trigonometric function for adjacent by hypotenuse .the hypotenuse is found which is the distance between the sun and the moon as shown in the figure
