  1. 360 - 315 = 45
    so P is 45 degrees north of west from Q
    QRP is right angle
    so PR = RQ = 60 km

  2. My diagram shows a right-angled triangle PQR, with angle Q as 45° and RP = 60
    So you have a right-angled isosceles triangle.

    No calculations required, RQ is also 60 km

  3. The diagram shows a right angled
    360-315=45

    Tan45=x/60
    Note: tan45=1

    1=x/60
    Cross multiply
    60*1=x
    X=60
