In 2 hours, plane A travels 300 miles.
In 2 hours, plane B travels 400 miles
It is just a 3-4-5 triangle. Use Pythagoras.
i thought the answer to this question would be 700, but on the answer sheet it says 500. I don't get how it was done. Please help, thanks.
If two planes leave the same airport at 1:00 PM, how many miles apart will they be at 3:00 PM if one travels directly north at 150 mph and the other travels directly west at 200 mph?
2 hours have past, so the planes move 300 miles and 400 miles perpindicular to eachother, so how far apart they are is a pythagorean theorem question
We have to find the hypotneuse of this triangle, so let d be how far apart they are
you will see d is 500
