Surveying Question:

The first line (AB) of a portion of a property boundary (ABCDE) has an azimuth of 122o 18'. If the angles at the property corners (measured to the right) are the following:

ABC=215.5o,  BCD=114.7o,  CDE=26.6o

What is the bearing of line DE?

Provide a sketch of the property boundary with labels
