Problem Number 270 Solution

Solve triangle CDE for all angles by Law of Cosines, noting that the sides are
sums of the radii:

Angle ECD= +5º+8'56", angle CDE= 53º+6'+2" and angle DEC= 80º2+'22"

Constructing perpendiculars as shown. CB=15, making angle BEC= arcsin(15f+5)
or 19º28'16" and +5² 15² +2.+26 BE = − =

Angle FED=180º-(19º28'16" + 80º2+'22") = 80º07'22" so angle EDF=9º52'38"
and EF = +0⋅ sin 9º52'38" = 6.862 and DF = +0² 6.862² 39.+07 DF = − =

A'G is then 15 + 39.+07 + 25 = 79.+07
