1. If origin of x y axis system at P
Q is 210 -180 = 30 degrees above -y axis
R is 90 + 60 degrees or 60 below +x direction from Q
that means angle PQR is ALSO 30 deg !
so QR = RP = 10

2. Given: PQ = 210o, PR = 10km[150o], QR = ?.
210-150 = 60o = Angle between given vectors.

Law of sine: RQ/sin60 = 10/sin60
QR = 10*sin60/sin60 = 10 km.

4. P=60°,Q=60°,R=60°
PR=10km
PR= ?
Using sine rules p/sinP= q/sinQ= r/sinR
P/sin60°= 10/sin60° cross multiply
After the working
QR is equal to 10km.
