I believe that my answer is 10.8, am I correct or not?

I'll just assume that I'm correct...

No, your answer is not correct.
We can utilize the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of PQ.
First, find the length of PR.
PR² = PQ² + QR²
PR² = 6² + 8² = 100
PR = √100 = 10
Now, find the length of QR.
QR = PQ² - PR²
QR = 11² - 10² = 21
Conclusively, find the length of PQ.
PQ² = PR² + QR²
PQ² = 10² + 21² = 541
PQ ≈ √541 ≈ 23.3
Consequently, the length of PQ is approximately 23.3 units. Rounded to the most proximate tenth, this is 23.3.
