**Reiny**, Thursday, December 6, 2012 at 8:05amAt a time of t seconds

let the distance covered by the boat be 3t m

let the distance covered by the woman be 2t m

If D is the distance between them,

D^2 = (3t)^2 + 10^2 + (2t)^2

D^2 = 13t^2 + 100

2D dD/dt = 26t

dD/dt = 13t/D

at 3 seconds D^2 = 81 + 100 + 16 = 197

D = √197

so at 3 seconds , dD/t = 13(3)/√197 = 2.7786

= appr 2.8 m/s
