**bobpursley**, Saturday, June 23, 2012 at 10:54amdraw the picture as a at 3pm and at 5 pm. Label the distance the ship from the ship to the lighthouse as d.

Note d^2=original distance^2+(15t)^2

where t=0 at 3pm, t=2 at 5pm, etc.

Now, at t=2, using law of sines...

original distance/sin(90-52)=d/sin90

so you know then d=originaldistance/sin38 at 5PM

also, from the law of cosines..

originaldistance^2=d^2+(15t)^2-2d15tcos38 where t=2

now, you can solve for all.
