Lars Bergman you wrote: Mike, I've been looking into this problem, and I agree that you can't solve it by angles only. All angles except two, BAD and ABC, can be easily found, but you need one of those two to get the answer.
I’m so relieved you found no simple answer. I just kept going around and around and ending up were I started from with one unknown too many in the answer. You could say that after three days and nights I’d sine’d my life away. The silly thing is; you can solve it as quickly as it takes to draw the diagram using scale drawing. DaveP
