the constants are:
k11 = (16*V1*V1)/(n^3*(pi)^2*(2*pi*f)*L)
k22 = (16*V2*V2)/(n^3*(pi)^2*(2*pi*f)*L)
k33 = (16*V3*V3)/(n^3*(pi)^2*(2*pi*f)*L)
k12 = (8*V1*V2)/(n^3*(pi)^2*(2*pi*f)*L)
k13 = (8*V1*V3)/(n^3*(pi)^2*(2*pi*f)*L)
k23 = (8*V2*V3)/(n^3*(pi)^2*(2*pi*f)*L)
The equations are:
P1 = (k12.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*sin(x(4)*pi/180))+(k13.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*sin(x(5)*pi/180))
P2 = -(k12.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*sin(x(4)*pi/180))+(k23.*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*sin((x(5)-x(4))*pi/180))
P3 = -(k13.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*sin(x(5)*pi/180))+(k23.*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*sin((x(4)-x(5))*pi/180))
Q1 = (k11.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(1)*pi/360))-(k12.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*cos(x(4)*pi/180))-(k13.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*cos(x(5)*pi/180))
Q2 = -(k12.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*cos(x(4)*pi/180))+(k22.*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*cos(x(2)*pi/360))-(k23.*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*cos((x(5)-x(4))*pi/180))
Q3 = -(k13.*cos(x(1)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*cos(x(5)*pi/180))-(k23.*cos(x(2)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*cos((x(5)-x(4))*pi/180))+(k33.*cos(x(3)*pi/360).*cos(x(3)*pi/360))
How can I solve for the angles x(1), x(2), x(3), x(4) and x(5)? Can anyone please help me to solve these equations?

Ok Walter, please let me inform what you get when the computation would finish

Analytic solution:
x(1) = 180 + 360*Z1
x(2) = 180 + 360*Z2;
x(3) = 180 + 360*Z3;
x(4) and x(5) arbitrary (that is, the above 3 together solve all 5 equations)
Here, Z1, Z2, and Z3 represent arbitrary integers

Solving for x(4) and x(5) both failed at the place I was indicating was taking a long time. I did not go back to try substituting in the other choices.
