In the solution that is presented the coordinate for E''' is 329.9. This should be
E''' = 1329.9
Comment on problem: I see nothing in the verbage of the problem that says one will hold
point A (see solution of problem for lettering) and move from point E along the line with the given bearing of N 75015 E.
It appears that there are 3 solutions to this problem and all 3 should be given.
Solutions:
1. as given
2. Hold point E and slide from point A along bearing N 42139 W
3. Move from both points A & E along the given bearings at each end and parallel with a line joining A & E till you have no loss in area as the problem request.
Looking forward to all 3 solutions.
