I think the answer is 3,3 but Im not sure what the steps are to get this.
Euclid's first two postulates are 1. A straight line segment can be drawn joining any two points. 2. Any straight line segment can be extended indefinitely in a straight line. We can assume the distress signal is coming from one source at one specific location, and that it sends a signal in a straight line. Ship "A" is receiving it from the northeast, so draw a line from "A" that goes northeast, and extend it across the page. Ship "B" Is receiving the signal from the west, so draw a horizontal line from "B" out towards the west (left). Extend that line too. ***--->The place where they meet must be where the signal is. <------* In terms of the postulates, we have 3 points: where ship "A" is, where ship "B" is, and where the signal is. Let's call these A, B, and C, respectively. Postulate #1 says we can draw a straight line between A and C, and another one between B and C.
