Explain the computation process to determine:
 Coordinates of the traverse points
 Area of the traverse
Compute Coordinates
Start at point D; perform a forward computation to point C.


At point C, compute direction to radius point; Az = (60°38’54”+180°)90°00’00” = 150°38’54” Perform a forward computation to radius point.


At radius point, compute direction to point B. Az = (150°38'54"+180°00'00") + 42°30'00" = 373°08'54" = 13°08'54" Perform a forward computation to point B.


At point B, compute direction to point A. Az = (13°08'54"+180°00'00)  50°15'00" = 142°53'54" Perform a forward computation to point A.


There isn't sufficient data to perform a forward computation from point A to point E. Point E is also connected to point D but there isn't enough data to perform a forward computation from point D. However, point E can be determined by a DistanceDirection intersection using its connections to points A and D. 

Compute direction from point A to E Az = (142°53'54"+180°00'00")  67°48'25" = 255°05'09" Compute the DistanceDirection intersection.

Compute Area
Method 1
Compute through radius point
List coordinates through the radius point and compute the area. 

Compute the Sector area.


Add the two areas together to determine total area: Area = A_{1} + A_{2} 
Method 2
Compute along chord
List coordinates going along the chord and compute the area. 

Compute the Segment area.


Add the two areas together to determine total area: Area = A1 + A2
