Two automobiles are traveling on intersecting roads. The first automobile is traveling northeast at 35 km/h. The second automobile begins 7 km north of the first, and it is traveling east at 25 km/h. Assuming that these cars will continue at this rate, will they collide? Assign vector equations to each line and assume that the first automobile begins at the origin.
