X is the hypotenuse of a right triangle....ahs to be longer than the leg labelled as 28

   the only plausible answer is 46

This looks like an impossibility

 

By Side-Angle-Side....triangles BFP  and  CFP  are congruent

 

Then  BP  = CP =  23  =  x

 

But CP =  x   is  the hypotenuse  in  right triangle  CPE...so  it  must  be greater  than  leg EP  which is  28
