I cannot understand how to find angles and find the path of the ray of light passing through a prism, pls help me

Figure shows refraction of light ray in a prism made up of transparent material like glass .

A light ray incident at a point A on left side of prism, refrated along the line AB ,

incident on opposite side at B and emerging out of prism.

PAQ is normal , i.e perpendicular to left side face and passing through point A .

RBS is normal , i.e perpendicular to right side face and passing through point B .

Incident angle of light ray is i , i.e. angle between incident ray and normal PAQ .

Angle of refraction is r , i.e. angle between refracted ray and normal at A

Angle of incidence at right side face is r'  , i.e angle between refratced ray and normal RBS.

Angle of emergence is e , i.e angle between emergent ray and normal RBS.

As shown in figure , if we extend incident ray and emergent ray inside the prism, we get angle of deviation d

Angle of deviation is angle between incident ray and emergent ray.
