Can someone give me a hint on how to solve? Thanks...

It looks as if:

Dimension AB = CD = 35m

Dimension BC = AD = 18m

Dimension AE = 23m

What does the and mean?

It looks as if they were meant to be angles.

If angle ABE is 0deg38' and angle EBC is 0deg44min

then it is solvable.

Need a little more info.

Could you clarify the assumptions?
