Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

by using trigonometry

opposite side = 8ft

the hypotenuse = 12ft

sine A = opposite side/hypotenuse

therefore angle A = inverse sine(opposite side/hypotenuse)

A = inverse sine( 8/12) = 41.8 degrees

rounding off to the nearest degree = 42 degrees.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
