We can use the Law of Cosines to solve this

 

We have that

 

96.8^2  = 130^2  + 56^2  - 2(130)(56)cos(ABC)       rearrange as

 

[ 96.8^2 - 130^2 - 56^2 ] / [ -2(130)(56)]  =  cos(ABC)

 

Using the cosine inverse (arccos), we have

 

arccos ( [ 96.8^2 - 130^2 - 56^2 ] / [ -2(130)(56)] )  = ABC ≈  42.9°
