okay. Using the distance formula to figure out the distance between the two ships at time t we know we have 100 minus zero square. Plus, this is where variables come in 25 t post 35 t squared, which gives us DDT is the square root 10,000 plus 3600 t squared, which now tells us that deep prime of tea is gonna be one over two square root of 10 1000 plus 3600 t squared which simplifies to 1 80 t divided by the square root of 25 plus 90 squared, which tells us that deep REM of force notices just plugging in four is gonna be 1 80 times four divided by squirt of 25 plus nine times for squared, which is gonna be 55.38 kilometers per hour.
