    I can't promise there isn't an easier way than this but..

    let \vec{AO}=a

    Write a vector equation for the line through A and C in terms of a and b.

    Do the same for the line through O and P.

    Find the position vector of Q in terms of a and b.

    Hello, this is an answer. I'm sure there are other methods. Thanks.
