    Sorry the correct ans should be 35.07 degrees. This is because sin 45 =1/2. So a perpendicular line drawn from angle B to the base is 4. Now sin A is 4/7. So sin inverse would be 35.07 degrees.

    .
    8cos45° + 7cos A° = 10

    7Cos A° = 10 - 8 Cos 45°

    Cos A° = 1/7 of [10 - 8 x 0.7071]

    = 1/7 of [10 - 5.656]

    = 1/7 of (4. 35)

    A° = cos inverse of 0. 621428

    = 51.58°
