    So everything EXCEPT 31.44 and 55.1 was on the original problem given to you? Can you post the exact problem as it was given?

    Your answers are correct:

    \frac{\sin \alpha}{6} = \frac{\sin 73^0}{11} \Rightarrow \alpha = 31.44^0.

    \frac{\sin \beta}{11} = \frac{\sin 31.44^0}{7} \Rightarrow \beta = 55.1^0.

    The question as originally posted by the OP is in no need of clarification.
