Boat A leaves the dock at 12pm heading due South at a constant speed of 20 km/h.
Meanwhile, at 12pm Boat B, a pirate ship, is 15 km due West of the dock where boat
A started, and is sailing due East at a constant speed of 15 km/h. If the pirates get
within 10 km of another boat, they will spot it and eventually capture it. Is Boat A
in danger of getting captured by the pirates on Boat B?
