Two mariners report to the skipper of a ship that they are distances d1 and d2 from the shore. The skipper knows from historical data that the mariners A & B make errors that are normally distributed and have a standard deviation of s1 and s2. What should the skipper do to arrive at the best estimate of how far the ship is from the shore?
