Default trig question - help me find X

I am trying to draw out the bolt pattern of a 6 on 5.5 wheel spacer.. and my limited CAD ability has revealed a very rusty trig ability. When I was 16 I could have done this on a napkin in about 2 minutes... but tonight I find myself scratching my head..

Can someone solve this? 30-60-90 triangle, the long leg that's not the hypotenuse is 2.25, aka the radius of the 5.5" circle. I need to know how far "up" or down, or sideways to draw, so that I can draw in the hypotenuse then create a lug hole where that intersects the circle. Here's a chance to prove how smart you is.. what's X?
