I need to find the optimal path across two points, in two straight line segments. The speed from point A to B is 12ft/s, and 4ft/s from point B to C.
The Attempt at a Solution
I set segment AB as x, BC as y, ED as w, and DC as z. With that, I set up the equations:
x/12 + y/4 = P
w + z = 100
However, I am stumped at how to progress from here on. I tried playing around with the trigonometric functions in the triangle, but that seemed to complicate the problem even more. Does anyone has any insight into this?
