A pilgrim travelling along a road, which at this point runs due North and is straight, observes a sign by the wayside warning travellers to the North that the den of Ali Baa Baa and his 40 thieves is located at a bearing of 49o T at a distance of 8km.
Ali's gang uses a herd of camels in their forays to plunder luckless travellers and these camels have a maximum endurance of 14km. Ali must always return to his den.
a) Determine how much further the pilgrim can travel before he is in range of Ali's gang. State any assumptions you may have made.
b) How far he must then travel before he is out of range again.
Help please and try to explain your answer and show working please?
