A ship leaves port at noon at a bearing of 143°. The ship’s average rate of speed over this time is 12 miles per hour.
Describe the location of the ship at 4:30 p.m. by writing a vector in component form. Then explain what these components mean in terms of the scenario.
Drag a value into each box to correctly complete the statements.
The component form of the vector representing the ship at 4:30 p.m. is approximately 〈−43.1, 32.5〉. This means that the ship is about Response area miles to the Response area and about Response area miles to the Response area of where the ship left port.
