Homework Help: Math

Posted by Shruti on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 4:32pm.

A fishing boat leaves port at 11 miles per hour at a bearing of 210 degrees for 2 hours, then turns to a bearing of 250 degrees at 8 miles per hour for 4 hours, and finally changes to a bearing of 280 degrees at 7 miles per hour for 2 hours. At this point, the boat heads directly back to port at a speed of 8 miles per hour. Find the time it takes the boat to return to port as well as the boat's bearing as it does. (I know that the return time is 7.67 hours)
