It turns out I made a typo in my calculations when I posted 76.32 earlier (I used 38 instead of 39 for \( \angle CEA \) ). Maple claims the angle is approximately 81.00000016; I am wondering if the exact solution is actually 81 (changed typo from 80 to 81)

For the record: I tried an... err... "very conventional" approach and did a drawing to scale in OO Draw. ;-) From this I obtained an angle of 81° as well (say ±0,2°). So this seems to be correct. But I wonder if there is no easier solution to this problem.

@Gerson: So <BED is not 90° but the omnipresent 111°. Maybe this gives one more clue here.
