    Basic application of your simple right-angled triangle properties ....

    AC/25 =sin25°
    AB = 25sin25 = 10.57

    BC/25 = cos25°
    BC = 22.66

    BTW, the usual convention is to label the vertices of the triangle using capitals and label the side opposite a vertex with the corresponding small letter.
    e.g. For triangle ABC
    C = 90° , B = 25° and c=25
