Question 2

Five equally spaced buoys represent the direct passage across Lake Theta from the Stanford to the
Fairview landing.

Outboard and Speedboat depart from Stanford in their respective boats to go to Fairview.
Outboard advances direct whereas Speedboat needs to stop at the Cranfield landing to refuel.

Outboard just passes the second buoy as Speedboat stops at Cranfield. Outboard is passing the third
buoy as Speedboat leaves Cranfield.

They landed at Fairview simultaneously.
a. How far is Cranfield from Stanford?
b. How far is Fairview from Cranfield?
