By making  the figure it would be clear
by the  figure its clear that we will use pythagorous theorem
(20)²+(100-x)²=x²
solving the above equation  you will get 2 answers of x one of them would be -ve while the other would be +ve we will neglect the -ve part and take the +ve part to solve further
now the required answer is (100-x)
mark as best if you got it
