We can;t do questions for you - we just give hints. Do you understand what a bearing is?

I can do the question for you, but I'd prefer not to, as said above.

If you can't answer this question, look in a textbook or google it, but don't try to solve the problem yet.

If you are familiar with bearings, then draw the points S, P & F like you would draw a triangle, with the distance between S & P being 5km and P & F being 5 km. You can then use the angles of the bearings to find angles in the triangle, and then that enables you to find both the bearing and length of SF, using rules you should already know.

Clue: You should end up with an special kind of triangle.

P.s by the way when writing the bearing 60 degrees it should be written in the form 060, form for bearings.

Hope this helped. I'm guessing your a GCSE student, may I ask what level you are aiming for?
