An oil tanker is entering the Bay of Niteall near the seaside towns of Lazyville and Sleepyton. The oil tanker is due north of Sleepyton and due east of Lazyville. In order to determine the distance to shore, the communications officer, Elmer Mudd, sends out a blast on the fog horn. The horn automatically signals a light to flash back to the ship from the light towers in each town as soon as the sound strikes the sound sensors in the towers. It took 6 sec for the sound to reach Lazyville and 8 sec to reach Sleepyton. Elmer was able to calculate not only the distance from the ship to each town
