    I have a question about this problem, i was wondering where they got the cos 125degrees as well as the a=13.4 degrees. If anyone knows how they got this answer can you please tell me how?

    Looks like someone made an error. That should be cos 135 degrees (180 - 15 - 30 = 135) and the rest should follow.
