Explanation:
1).
Using the Pythagoras theorem RD2  + AR2 =AD2

2).
From the following diagram we see that X is located in west direction with respect to starting point.

3).From 1st expression, x = 76 – (768/12)=76-64 =12
From 2nd expression,(24*12)/36=8

4). From 1st expression, p = 15 + (3*3*5) = 60
From 2nd expression, 60 – (46/2)=37

5). From 1st expression, m=8 + (4*4*7) = 120
From 2nd expression,120 – (204/17) = 108
