sin( angle )   =   length of side opposite / length of hypotenuse

 

sin P   =   15 / 17

                                     Take the inverse sin of both sides of the equation.

P   =   arcsin( 15/17 )

                                     Plug  arcsin(15/17)  into a calculator to get...

P   ≈   61.93°
