Vectors of ships

  1. Aug 30, 2010 #1
    Two ships, A and B, leave port at the same time. Ship A travels northwest at 29 knots and ship B travels at 39 knots in a direction 40° west of south. After what time will the ships be 120 nautical miles apart? What will be the bearing of B (the direction of B's position) relative to A at that time?
