1) Ellipse?
2) Please provide a definition of "Hyperbola" using he word "difference".
3)
"A" is at (0,0)
"B" is at (0,100)
"Ship" is at (30,a)
4)
Ship to "A" is
Ship to "B" is

You must show some effort. Let's see what you get.
A ship is in distress off the cost of california. The ship's captain knows he is approximately 30 miles offshore. Transmitter A is located 100 miles due north of transmitter B, Both transmitters are on the coastline. From the transmission times, we know the ship is 60 miles closer to transmitter B than it is to transmitter A. Place the origin on transmitter B.
a) Make a diagram of the situation including graph of the hyperbola.
b) Find the hyperbolic model (in standard form) tracking the ship
c) Find the location of the ship relative to transmitter B
