Write function x(t) that describe the position of Gabriele as a function of time with respect to Earth.

Write function x(t) that describe the position of Xena as a function of time with respect to Earth.

Where do they meet each other?

Write a function x(t) that describes Xena's motion with respect to Gabriele.

I am choosing to define West as negative and East as positive. Also, we must convert km to m. 1. x(t)=-8t+3000 2. x(t)=6t+1000 3. -8t+3=6t+1--->14t=2000--->t=142.86s. This is the time it takes for them to meet. Plug that number back into either of the original position equations for the answer. 4. Xena begins 2000 m to the West of Gabriele, therefore x(t)=6t-2000.
