Hello kandyflossHave a look at the diagram I've attached. I've shown all the distances you need. You need to:

- Calculate BAC, using the Cosine Rule on ABC.

. - Calculate BAR using the fact that BAR is right-angled at R.

. - Calculate CAS in a similar way

. - Hence calculate PAT and finally the arc length PT

Can you complete it now?
