how to find angles of 4 lines of different sizes and join them to make a plan

Hi Good morning to everybody
I have an Autocad plan. The sizes are 301.04 x 218.66 x 181,26 x 219.98

How to draw this plan or find out exact angle to make this drawing.

 

I do not know any of the angle exactly

 

The bottom horizontal  line is 301.04

The vertical line on left of bottom horizontal is 218.66

the top horizontal line is 181.26

and the right side verticle line is 219.98

 

 

The left bottom and left top and right bottom is ok and the line sizes are OK. But the right top corneer is not fitting to close the lines or join the lines. There is a very small gap. If i know the angles than i can draw this plan exactly.

 

Is there any technical way in Autocad to draw four separate lines and join them by finding out all the four angles in this drawing.

 

 

Thanks for everybody who will answer to my question on email.

 

Best regards,

It's easy enough to draw a 4-sided polygon with the dimensions you've given, but there are an infinite number of shapes it could be.  You have to know at least one of the angles.

The animation is only to show that there is no single solution without knowing at least one angle. 

I actually didn't make the inital polygon using parametrics, I just made two adjacent lines at an arbitrary angle from the 1st two measurements, then two arcs from their endpoints with the other two measurments to find the other vertex.
