    hello could anyone please look at the attachment with this.. it's the June 11 question paper of mechanics 1.. I had a problem with the very last question in this paper where we were asked to find the time when Q was north west of P. I thought of equating the i and j components from the previous question where they asked us to find PQ. Turns out they did that, but took the negative of the j vector. Could you please explain why that happened?
