Answer

$\alpha=29^{\circ}$ $\beta=61^{\circ}$

Work Step by Step

$\sin\alpha=\frac{12}{25}$ $\alpha=\sin^{-1}\frac{12}{25}$ $\alpha\approx29^{\circ}$ Sum of interior angles of a triangle $= 180^{\circ}$ $90^{\circ} + \alpha + \beta = 180^{\circ}$ $90^{\circ} + 29^{\circ} + \beta \approx 180^{\circ}$ $\beta\approx61^{\circ}$
