Am I supposed to use a Pythagorean identity, and if so, where do I go from there. Any help you can give me would be so greatly appreciated. I am struggling through my precalculus book, and I did not do well in Trig or Geometry and passes Algebra I and II with a mid C. Please help me understand this problem. 1 solutions Answer 377910 by solver91311(16897)   on 2012-04-09 17:45:43 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! First of all, I fixed your equation. means the cosine of the angle , whereas is the squared value of the cosine function at . Very different things and they didn't give you in a Precalculus book. The easiest way to see what is going on in this equation is to use a simple substitution. Let and substitute. Factor the quadratic in Apply the Zero Product Rule: or Now recall the RANGE of the cosine function, i.e. . That means that is an extraneous root and can be discarded.

Let represent the speed of the plane in still air. Let represent the wind speed. We are given that mph, but is also the ground speed against the wind, at which speed the aircraft required 8 hours to fly the distance. Hence the distance flown is miles. From that we calculate the time for the downwind trip: mph. But the ground speed downwind is given by , hence: Solve the system for and John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it

At 10:30 when James starts, John will be 30 minutes into his trip. 30 minutes at 2 km/hr is 1 km. One hour later John will be 3 km from the start and James will be 4 km from the start, making a 3-4-5 right triangle at time 11:30. That was the easy way. Now the hard way: In the first 30 minutes John goes 1 km. Every hour after that, he goes 2 km. So counting hours since JAMES starts, John goes km. James is going twice as fast as John, so every hour after James starts he goes km. In order for them to be 5 km apart: Simplifying: Solve for the .
