You'll probably need a calculator to do it that way, though.

I agree, it is easy to construct the triangle. So it is possible to calculate it.

Since triangle BDP is equilateral and triangle BCP is isosceles, triangle DCP is isosceles and angle DPC = 180° - 17° - 17° - 60° = 86°. Hence angle DCP = (180° - 86°)/2 = 47° and so angle BCD = 30°. It follows that ABDC is a parallelogram and triangle ACP is isosceles, so angle CPA = 77°. Hence angle APB = 360° - 60° - 86° - 77° = 137°.
