This is interesting in part because the given data do not uniquely define P however that doesn't mean that the problem can't be solved.

Sorry, the labelling for the first part is wrong:

I am afraid I feel that some of the discussion (not the problem) can give mathematics a bad name. Clearly, if the problem is uniquely solvable, the area must be independent of the position of P. Hence, make APC collinear, hence height of triangle is 8 - (13/2), and its area is 9.75 sq units.
