Working with total internal reflection - critical angle

What is the critical angle for total internal reflection in plastic (polymethylmethacrylate) at an interface with air?

I believe the answer is 42.2^o. I need to see each step and formula to solve this question. Please assume I know nothing because this would be the correct assumption. :)
