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

    • Calculate \angle BAC, using the Cosine Rule on \triangle ABC.
      .
    • Calculate \angle BAR using the fact that \triangle BAR is right-angled at R.
      .
    • Calculate \angle CAS in a similar way
      .
    • Hence calculate \angle PAT and finally the arc length PT

    Can you complete it now?
