    Not sir :S I'm not a guy. Please do not post two questions in a single post! For the first question, since the diagram is not given, we need to draw one ourselves. |dw:1350743930628:dw| Step 1: find BD, can you?

    You have to find BD first, and the BD you found is not right. Plug in 61 instead of 76
