Ex #1: A ship proceeds on a course of 300o for 2 hours at a speed of 15 knots (1 knot = 1 nautical mile per hour). Then it changes course to 230o, continuing at 15 knots for 3 more hours. At that time, how far is the ship from its starting point?

Extra Question:

Ex #2: Sketch the plot of land described. Then find its area.

From a granite post, proceed 195 ft east along Tasker Hill Road, then along a bearing of S32oE for 260 ft, then along a bearing of S68oW for 385 ft, and finally along a line back to the granite post.
