Oct 29, 2004 #2 vsage I hope you don't find this too little help but first fill in all the angles you know. After that, law of sines is your friend.

Oct 29, 2004 #3 Rocko 24 0 I believe that to be so, i just haven't been able to find the angle 3 or angle 2, but maybe i am overlooking something.i will study it some more.

Oct 30, 2004 #4 Spectre5 182 0 You can find 2 equations that involve angles 2 and 3, then you have two equations and two unknowns
Oct 30, 2004 #5 Rocko 24 0 Oh Really, i don't see it! Every equation i come up with has an extra variable. i have found: angle 3 + angle 2 = 60degrees DA sin(95deg)=1000sin(angle2) or DP sin(120)=1000sin(angle2) and DP sin (60deg)=DA sin((95deg) and similiar for angle3

Oct 30, 2004 #6 Spectre5 182 0 OK...do this: Extend out the sides AB and DC until they meet. Then you have another triange there....you can find what that angle is using a couple of equations, then you can use it to find angles 2 and 3

Oct 30, 2004 #7 Spectre5 182 0 By "that angle", I am refering to the new angle formed by AB and CD :)
