How it works ?
This applet was designed to be seen by students after they’ve attempted to solve the following problem for a few minutes. (There are various methods of solution to this problem.)
Two ships (Ship A & Ship B) are out at sea.
Ship A is currently stationed at (50, 100) and travels in such a way that it moves 3 feet east and 5 feet north every minute. At the same time Ship A is at (50,100), Ship B is at (900,250) and moves 4 feet west and 4 feet north every minute.
