    at intersection diagonals and small side form an isosceles triangle

    using cosine law


    where b=c= half of a diagonal =180 meters

    A=65 degree





    other side will be

    With x,y be dimensions, then

    cos(90-(65/2))=x/360 and



    x=193.4279 and

    y=303.6209, I THINK.

    the dimensions are 360sin32.5 degrees and 360cos32.5 degrees

    or about 193.427859m and 303.62092m
