    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
