( begin{aligned} tan 60^{circ} &=frac{25 sqrt{3}}{a} sqrt{3} &=frac{25 sqrt{3}}{a} therefore & a=25 end{aligned} ) NOW in ( triangle A B D ) ( tan x^{circ}=frac{25 sqrt{3}}{(50+25)}=frac{25 sqrt{3}}{75} ) ( tan x=frac{sqrt{3}}{3} ) ( tan x=frac{1}{sqrt{3}} ) ( therefore x^{prime}=30^{circ} operatorname{ans}(2) 30^{circ} )
