You can find the length of OQ with the law of cosines and the bearing of OQ with the help of the law of sines. Try it, and if you need more assistance write back, BF wrote
BF, The line PT is parallel to the northsouth axis so the angle OPT has measure 75 degrees. This the angle OPQ has measure 75  20 = 55 degrees. Thus for the triangle OPQ you know the lengths of two sides and the measure of the angle between them and hence you can use the law of cosines to find the length of OQ. Penny
