**(Canadian Senior Mathematics Contest 2022, Part A, Question 5, CEMC - UWaterloo)**

A circle has centre $O$ and diameter $AB = 2 \sqrt{19}$. Points $C$ and $D$ are on the upper half of the circle. A line is drawn through $C$ and $D$, as shown. Points $P$ and $Q$ are on the
line so that $AP$ and $BQ$ are both perpendicular to $PQ$. $QB$
intersects the circle at $R$. If $CP = DQ = 1$ and $2AP = BQ$, what is the length of $AP$?
