Two people take identical jet skis across a river, traveling at the same speed relative to the water. Jet ski A heads directly across the river and is carried downstream by the current before reaching the opposite shore. Jet ski B travels in a direction that is 35° upstream, and arrives at the opposite shore directly across from the starting point.
(a)Find the ratio of the time it takes for the two jet skis to cross the river.
