Here is a link to the question:Distance formula problem?

Sally and Hannah are lost in the desert. Sally is 5 km north and 3 km east of Hannah. At the same time, they both begin walking east. Sally walks at 2 km/hr and Hannah walks at 3 km/hr.

1. When will they be 10 km apart?

2. When will the line through their locations be perpendicular to the line through their starting locations?

I found that answer for #1 is 11.66. #2 answer is 34/3 but I don't know how to solve for #2.
