2 ferryboats started at the same instant from opposite sides of a river, traveling across the water at right angles to the shore. They first met 720 yards from the nearest shore and, on reaching the opposite side, spent 10 minutes in the slip before starting back. They met again 400 yards from the nearest shore. What is the width of the river?
