sin x  = opposite / hypotenuse    in a right triangle

 

remember sin 45 dgrees = sqrt2 / 2

 

so for the triangle on the LEFT    sin 45 = sqrt(2) /2  = a/(7 sqrt(2) )  solve for a

                                                                  (7 * sqrt2) * sqrt(2)/2 = a

                                                                   14/2 = a = 7
