$260.2\ ft$ and $239.3\ ft$
Step 1. Draw a diagram as shown in the figure (not to scale). Step 2. For the left triangle, we have the angle $B=90^\circ+5^\circ=95^\circ$ Step 3. Using the Law of Cosines, we have $b^2=(200)^2+(150)^2-2(200)(150)cos95^\circ\approx67729$ Thus $b\approx260.2\ ft$ Step 4. For the right triangle, we have the angle $D=90^\circ-5^\circ=85^\circ$ Step 5. Using the Law of Cosines, we have $d^2=(200)^2+(150)^2-2(200)(150)cos85^\circ\approx 57271$ Thus $d\approx239.3\ ft$
