Now you have two triangles and for each you know the lengths of the three sides and the measure of one angle. At this point I would use the Law of Sines. Write back if you still need assistance,
Say you know AB,BC,CD,DA and the angle a. The cosine law applied to DAB gives you the diagonal BD. The cosine law applied to BCD gives you one of the angles; either law will give you the other two. You're now pretty close to finished... Good Hunting!
