Plotting question

Your present position is LAT 41° 05.5' N, LONG 72° 38.0'W. Assuming there is no set and drift, what course must you steer per standard magnetic compass (psc) to arrive at a position 3 miles due north of Horton Point Light?

Need some explanation of this , my course is 90 degrees true , using TVMDC I get V = 14 W and D = 2 E , so C would equal 102 but that is not a answer , I am not seeing something here

This is a simple point A to point B problem and you are not required to use the TVMDC table. Also since the problem is asking for psc you would use the inner ring on the compass rose.
