I have tried doing this many times but I cannot find the distance from X to A. Please help!

What are you studying? You have asked three questions that seem quite unrelated. In any case, your diagram is too small for me to read.

The required area = the area of the "base" of the discarded cone = $\pi h^2\!$.

Sorry, I don't fully understand, why $\pi h^2\!$?

The discarded cone is geometrically similar to the original cone so its height and base radius are equal. Its height is given as h, so its base radius is h.
