Parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas, oh my! Learn about this eccentric bunch of shapes.

The above diagram shows a point \(P\) on a parabola \(y^2=12x\) with focus \(F\). If \(l\) is a tangent line to the parabola at point \(P\), the \(x\)-intercept of \(l\) is \(Q\), and \(\angle FPQ=36^\circ,\) what is \(\angle PFQ\) in degrees?

**Note:** The above figure is not drawn to scale.
