This problem is as simple as knowing the definition of secant(x) = hypotenuse/adjacent. You have one red triangle which has a 90 degree angle. You can easily figure out the angle by the center of the circle. Using secant you can find the length of the hypotenuse which is the same length as the side which you want.
