Homework Help: Calc

Posted by Alison on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 8:51pm.

It is noon. A secret agent is driving a jeep through the desert in the tiny principality of Alta Loma. He is 32km from the nearest point on a straight, paved road. Down the road 16km is a power plant in which a band of international terrorists has placed a time bomb set to explode at 12:50pm. The jeep can travel at 48km/hr in the sand at 80 km/hr on a paved road. If he arrives at the power plant in the shortest possible time, how long will our hero have to diffuse the bomb?
