A ship sets out to sail to a point 120 km due north. An unexpected storm blows the ship to a point 100 km due east of its starting point. (a) How far and (b) in what direction must it now sail to reach its original destination?

You can still ask an expert for help

a) Use the Pythagorean theorem:

b) as for direction, the ship must sail northwest

Step 1

As the storm will be blowing the ship 100km to the east, the ship has to move 100km west to overcome the effect of ship

Also to reach the destination, the ship has to move 120km to its north. Thus in total the sailor has to more 120km north and 100km west

Thus

considering positive

a)As we know that the directions north and east are perpendicular to each other, the total distance the ship has to make can be calculated as shown below

D=156.2km

b)As explained above, the ship has to move 100km to the west and 120km to the north,

thus the direction in which the ship has to move will be

If $\mathrm{sin}\alpha +\mathrm{sin}\beta =a\text{}\text{and}\text{}\mathrm{cos}\alpha -\mathrm{cos}\beta =b$ , then what is $\mathrm{tan}\left(\frac{\alpha -\beta}{2}\right)$ ?

If I square both the equations

$2+2\mathrm{sin}(\alpha -\beta )={a}^{2}+{b}^{2}$

$\mathrm{sin}(\alpha -\beta )=\frac{{a}^{2}+{b}^{2}-2}{2}$

Since$\mathrm{sin}2\theta =\frac{2\mathrm{tan}\theta}{1+{\mathrm{tan}}^{2}\theta}$ , then

$\mathrm{sin}(\alpha -\beta )=\frac{2\mathrm{tan}\frac{\alpha -\beta}{2}}{1+{\left(\mathrm{tan}\frac{\alpha -\beta}{2}\right)}^{2}}$

It’s obviously the too long to solve, so is there a shorter way to do this?

I want to solve this integral :

${\int}_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\mathrm{cot}x\mathrm{ln}\left(\mathrm{sec}x\right)dx$

I tried the following substitution :$\mathrm{ln}\left(\mathrm{sec}x\right)=t$ which means $dt=\mathrm{tan}xdx$

$I={\int}_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty}}\frac{\mathrm{cot}x}{\mathrm{tan}x}tdt={\int}_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty}}\frac{t}{{\mathrm{tan}}^{2}x}dt$

I'm really disturbed by the${\mathrm{tan}}^{2}x$ , I tried also to substitute $\mathrm{sec}x=t$ but it's not helpful either. Any helpful approach to solve this problem ?

Given the Pythagorean triple,

$\begin{array}{rl}a& =\frac{{x}^{2}-25}{y}\\ b& =\frac{10x}{y}\\ c& =\frac{{x}^{2}+25}{y}\end{array}$

so ${a}^{2}+{b}^{2}={c}^{2}$ and $y\ne 0$. We wish to set its area $G=5$. Thus,

$G=\frac{1}{2}ab=\frac{1}{2}\frac{10x}{y}\frac{({x}^{2}-25)}{y}=5$

Or simply,$\begin{array}{}\text{(1)}& {x}^{3}-25x={y}^{2}\end{array}$

Can you help find two non-congruent right-angled triangles that have rational side lengths and area equal to 5?
