Moshe and Scot, thanks so much. Both of those methods worked for me individually!

Drafting this was automatic as I was formally trained as a "board" person

at the time the word "computer" was defined as a machine that took up the

space of an average sized bedroom and stored data on a magnetic tape.

 

It took a minute to write these steps sequentially so one can understand.

 

PUT AWAY THAT CALCULATOR!

WOW, guys you really do things the hard way!

 

Easy is like the following:

 

Start Pline command: 

Draw a vertical line from the top at the desired distance.  (It isn't given so I used 3'):

Change to arc.  Use command line entry - @6,-6 "enter":

then Command line entry again - @5,-5 "enter":

Change to line and complete the vertical line to finish point.  (Again I used 3')

 

See attached pic.

 

One command and three clicks.  Simple!

Good observation / solution Steve.

I went with the pretense that the two vertical lines were existing and the OP wanted

to connect these two with arcs of specified radius.

Your solution showed the tangent of the two arcs at the quadrants, which was not

the desired look on the OP's smart phone pic (the vertical lines were closer together

than what you show)...
