Can someone help explain this to me?
Ship A receives a distress signal from the southwest, and ship B receives a distress signal from the same vessel from the north. At what location is the vessel in distress located? Describe how you arrived at your conclusion using complete sentences. You must show all work in order to receive credit.
A coordinate graph shows two points labeled 1,1 with an arrow pointing N and 3,4 with an arrow pointing SW.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so when they say from the north and southwest these are exact angles they are giving us

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that picture is just to help you get an idea on how to get the points exactly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you want to draw a vertical line from point (1,1) and a slope 1 line from point (3,4) and see their intsersection

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you get why southwest was slope 1 line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oaky well just to clear it up, think about what 45 degrees means for the horizontal and vertical length in a triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so samy thing here it must mean the change in x and change in y is the same, so slope is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay go ahead and work out the line equations now, cya
