take a look at the Angle Bisector Theorem
AX/BX = CA/CB 👍

This is really just about the base toes of a triangle, namely triangle ABC. This is the complete solution for this particular problem:
The Angle Bisector Theorem tells us that \[\frac{AC}{AX}=\frac{BC}{BX}\]so \[AX=\frac{AC\cdot BX}{BC}=\frac{21\cdot30}{45}=\boxed{14}.\] 👍
