A ferry travels between ports A and B on two islands, 60km apart. Port A is due west of port B. There is a current in the sea of constant speed 4km/h from a bearing 260 degrees. The ferry can travel at 20km/h in still water.
(i) Calculate the bearing on which the ferry must head from each port.
(ii) On a particular journey from A rto B. the engines fail when the ferry is half way between the ports. If the coastline near to port B runs north - south, at what distance from port B does the ferry hit land?
Thanks.... please could you also draw a diagram to help visualise the scenario for me...
Thanks sooo much
