Yacht A has initial position (-10, 4) and has velocity vector.

Yacht B has initial position (3, -13) and has velocity vector.

1. Explain why the position of each yacht at time t is given by

           rA = + t  and rB = + t

- For vector equations, the form is =. ( refers to an initial position and  refers to a direction vector.)

- Therefore, a vector equation for Yacht A can be written as + t.

- A vector equation for Yacht B can be written as + t.

3. The position of ...
