ok so there.s a right triangle
90 degrees on the bottom left, unknown on the bottom right
and the top angle is 58 degrees
the bottom side is 4.0 in length and the other sides are unknown
solve for all sides and angles

You can use the facts
To get you started assuming is the hypotenuse. Now solve for . You could now solve for the remaining side with either the pythagorean theorem or the cosine relation.
For the angle, use the fact that all angles add to
EDIT: Fixed some typos.
Well, you know that a triangle has 180 degrees, and we've accounted for 90 + 58 = 148 of them. Thus, the remaining angle is 42 degrees.
I'll call your "bottom" side x, your "vertical" side y, and your hypotenuse h (if I'm reading your description right!.
So,
But we know x = 4, so
.
Can you find y?
Edit: All angles are in degrees.
