@dan815 you said you'd help explain?
so when they say from the north and southwest these are exact angles they are giving us
you want to see where a vessel could be such that it is exactly SW from that upper ship and exactly north from the bottom ship
I have to describe my steps of how I figured it out I can't submit pictures, so I would put that I first connected the line down in the southwest 'ship' right?
that picture is just to help you get an idea on how to get the points exactly
something exactly south west means 45 degrees downward
which happens with lines of slope 1
and something exactly north means a vertical line
so you want to draw a vertical line from point (1,1) and a slope 1 line from point (3,4) and see their intsersection
can you figure out the line equations?
I think so,
okay i will leave you to it, but before i go
Do you get why southwest was slope 1 line?
oaky well just to clear it up, think about what 45 degrees means for the horizontal and vertical length in a triangle
so samy thing here it must mean the change in x and change in y is the same, so slope is 1
Okay thank you!!
okay go ahead and work out the line equations now, cya
