If the image above is my example, I know the dimensions of ABCD and I know all the angles, such as < BPQ.

2. Relevant equations

Trig/Pythagorous...

3. The attempt at a solution

I'll post if I come up with anything that looks like it's gettign anywhere =P

Thanks for the help... let's see how my first ever post is received =)
