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
