    this is a non calc btw. i'm honestly unsure as to how i approach this question. i know the general equation of a circle is x2 + y2 = r2; does that mean i need to square ten?

    No, r^2=10

    You just need to work out the gradient OP, then use the negative reciprocal of it to construct the line PQ. Then just find where it intersects the x-axis.

    how would i work out the gradient if i only know that the x-coordinate of p is 1?

    You can work out the y-coordinate of P using the equation.
