Problem:
Three radioequipped plumbing vans are broadcasting on the same frequency,f0. Van 1 is moving north of van 2 with speed v, van 2 is fixed, and van 3 is moving west of van 2 with speed v. what change in frequency (ff0) does van 3 hear from van 2? From van 1?
Attempt at solution:
f= f0 * [tex]\sqrt{(1\beta)/(1+\beta)}[/tex]
is the frequency rate that van 1 and van 2 will receive signals from one another and at which van 2 and van 3 will receive signals from each other.
However, I am confused as to how to find the rate at which van 3 hears from van 1?
I know f=1/t
but I cannot see how to make this work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Pictorial representation attached so the placement of the vans is more clear.
