Group Title
A sherman is in a rowboat on a lake and 3
km from shore. He wishes to reach a store 2
km down the (straight) shore. He can row at
5 km/h and run at 13 km/h. To what point
downshore should he row to get to the store
as quickly as possible?
It's supposed to be optimization but I'm wondering if I need to use related rates... :/
