When refering to the 20o angle, the 10 cm side is the adjacent and y is the hypotenuse.

Since  cos = adj/hyp        cos(20o)  =  10/y

Multiplying by y:          y · cos(20o)  =  10

Dividing:                                       y  =  10 / cos(20o)

 

Now, it's up to you and your calculator ...
