hyptotenuse AC= 1480

opposite CD= 784.28056

adjacent AD 914.7554

figures above are correct not sure why it has me listed as Stephen. Also, hypotenuse of CB is 2537.98496522845. they are two attached triangles. CAB is the outermost triangle. CD is the opposite side of both triangles. CAD with the angle of 32 degrees. CAD has a hypotenuse of 1480.

Looks like its a triangle within a triangle problem. Still researching to try to find out how to solve
