    x can be any real number, it depends on angle between sides of funnel.

    If this were a real-life funnel, x would probably be somewhere between 6 and 12 in. for practical purposes but it's only a guess. Mathematically, x can be any positive real number.

    Edit: after second look, I noticed that x can't be longer than 16in in case that sides are at 180°, making a disc of 16in. diameter 

    Finally,  0 < x < 16.   😳
