Find AI using Pythagoras:

 

AI2 = (AC/2)2 + (18+5)2

 

where AC2 = 52 + 72

 

To find angle AIE first find length EI.

 

EI2 = (EH/2)2 + 52   and EH = AC

 

Having found AI and EI, now use the cosine rule to find AIE:

 

cos(AIE) = (AI2 + EI2 - 182)/(2*AI*EI) so AIE = cos-1((AI2 + EI- 182)/(2*AI*EI))

 

I’ll leave you to crunch the numbers!
