**drwls**, Sunday, May 17, 2009 at 2:09amThere is one side that must be half as long as the hypotenuse. The length of that side is 12. That is the side opposite the 30 degree angle. The other side has a length of

sqrt[(24)^2 - (12)^2] = 20.78

The nearest whole number is 21.

You have not indicated which side is x.
