    Point O is on the line segment NP. 

    Given NO = 5 and NP = 20, 

    the length of OP is 15.

    Let me clarify your question:

    Point O is on line segment NP. 

    N ----------- O ------------------------------------- P

    Clearly NO + OP = NP

    You are given two of the values:

    NO = 5

    NP = 20

    Plug those in and solve for the length of segment OP:

    5 + OP = 20

    OP = 20 - 5

    OP = 15

    Answer:

    The other segment (OP) is 15, because 5 + 15 = 20
