    Whoops, forgot to add that "D" needs to be divided by 60. Attaching updated version. Also, another reference used (Mainly for the requirements for setting sight 1 and 2) is: 

    Gery, Stanley W. "The direct fix of latitude and longitude from two observed altitudes." Navigation 44.1 (1997): 15-24.
