additional to what Christoph wrote a solution with Theta and R
as parameter and without pst-eucl (using it is always a good choice!)



\def\Theta{60 } \def\Radius{4 }

\psline(-4,0)(8,0)\pnode(0,0){O} \pnode(-\Radius,0){B}
\pnode(!\Radius 180 \Theta sub PtoC){X}
\psarc(0,0){\Radius}{0}{!180 \Theta sub 5 add}
\pnode(!\Radius \Theta 3 div PtoC){E}
