Ship

Attack!

### SCENARIO

The Pirates of the Caribbean are at it again!

The Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman are trying to find each other, but each ship is on a different path through the sea.

Once the ships meet, the pirates will attack each other and the winners will take over the

losing ship.

### PROBLEM

• The Black Pearl starts 3 miles south of the origin. It then travels along a slope of 3/2.

• Write an equation of a line that represents the path of the Black Pearl.

• The Flying Dutchman starts 2 miles north of the origin. It then travels along a slope of -1.

• Write an equation of a line that represents the path of the Flying Dutchman.

• Graph the equations that represent the paths of the ships on your worksheet.

• At what point will the ships meet?

• What is the solution of the two equations you found?
