autodesk map

I need to create 4 lines with different bearing and distance. when i create the lines they run to the left with no end point. how do i get these lines to connect.

line 1 @2639.77<s89dw
line 2 @211.11<N85dw
line 3 @2641.02<n88dw
line 4 @2638.88<n88d30'w

i am trying to get them to connect so i can get mean bearing.
any help to find the mean would help also.

2. Take a look at this:

Make sure your running object snaps are OFF.

3. i cant get the lines to stop it just keep going no end points. any help

4. Increase your drawing limits. Make sure you have Surveyor's units set.

Draw the line's

5. If a line or any other geometry runs out of the screen, enter in the command line Z E
That will inform AutoCAD that you wish to Zoom to Extents of the drawing. Notice the space after Z and after E -they act like <Enter>
Just a question: are you using real lines, or construction lines? Because the construction lines are infinite.

6. Assuming that there is a typo in the first angle, (s89dw should be N89dW), then the mean angle is the average of the angles which is 87.625, so the mean bearing is N87.625dW

no it is s89dw

mean bearing is N89-03-30W

using lines

Ok, I am unused to working in those units, but having more time now, I am unable to arrive at your solution.

A guy i work with showed me how to get N89-03-30W

ill attach the drawing

i put in the 4 lines with bearing distance then. then ran a line from e endpoint to the west endpoint.
