Particles $A$ and $B$ start moving at the same time. $A$ moves with constant velocity $\mathbf{i}+\mathbf{j}$ and $B$ moves with constant velocity $-2 \mathbf{i}-3 \mathbf{j}$. Find

(i) the position vector of $A$ after $t$ seconds,

(ii) the position vector of $B$ after $t$ seconds.

It is given that $X$ is the distance between $A$ and $B$ after $t$ seconds.

(iii) Show that $X^{2}=(8-3 t)^{2}+(10-4 t)^{2}$.

(iv) Find the value of $t$ for which $(8-3 t)^{2}+(10-4 t)^{2}$ has a stationary value and the corresponding value of $X$

A man, who can row a boat at $3 \mathrm{~ms}^{-1}$ in still water, wants to cross a river from $A$ to $B$ as shown in the diagram. $A B$ is perpendicular to both banks of the river.

A river is 104 metres wide and the current flows at $0.5 \mathrm{~ms}^{-1}$ parallel to its banks. A woman can swim at $1.6 \mathrm{~ms}^{-1}$ in still water. She swims from point $A$ and aims for point $B$ which is directly opposite, but she is carried downstream to point $C$. Calculate the time it takes the woman to swim across the river and the distance downstream, $B C$, that she travels.
