Lorraine steered her boat out of the harbor, heading east. She travelled 500 m to one buoy and then turned north and headed 300 m to another buoy. Jeff also left the harbor from the same point, and travelled 300 m [N] to a buoy, and then went 500 m [E].
a) What is the position of Jeff's boat relative to Lorraine's boat after they finish moving?
b) If Lorraine and Jeff race straight back, in what direction are they headed?[/B]
The Attempt at a Solution
Okay, for letter a, I was a bit confused because are they not in the same position? They end up in the same place. But I guess technically Jeff's position would be west relative to Lorraine's boat?
For letter b, I said southwest, because they first go north east. Correct or not?
Thanks for your help :)[/B]
