This question is related to a vector/force question, but I just need help with finding two angles:
Given the following triangle:
and knowing that a+b = 14. How can you figure out the length of a and b?
Call the clearly vertical leg (that obviously is intended to meet the side of length 10 at a right angle) c.
Then we know that
and
Then
But
and we know that . Thus
Thus we have the system of equations
This has a solution of
and
(Which are at least close to Isomorphism's a = 8 and b = 6.)

EDIT: Just saw your post ty2391. Obviously I agree with your answer. Good job.
