Geometric Optics: Snell's Law

Problem #: 1 | Variant #: 2

After passing from one material into another a light ray makes an angle of 51.88o with respect to the interface surface. If it came from a medium with index of refraction 1.66 and passed into a medium with index of refraction 1.88, what angle did the ray make with the interface when it was in the first medium?
