###### Question details

I need help answering each part of the question, step by step. I'm a little lost and need clarification. Thank you very much.

A helicopter pilot at an airport is told to fly a distance, d at
a speed v directly east to pick up a

stranded hiker. However, he sees no hiker when he arrives. Radioing
the control tower, he learns

that the hiker is actually a distance, d west of the airport. The
pilot turns around and heads straight

for the hiker at a speed that is 50% faster than his speed during
the initial segment of his wrong way

trip.

a. Assume the x-axis points east and has its origin at the
airport. Draw a diagram representing the

motion during the trip, indicating the position of the airport, the
turning point, and the

rendezvous location. Label the east and westward segments with
appropriate symbols and

indicate how those symbols are related to the given information, d
and v.

b. What is the average speed of the helicopter during the trip from
takeoff to rendezvous with

the hiker?

c. What is the x-component of the helicopter’s average velocity for
the trip from takeoff to

rendezvous with the hiker?

d. What is the average velocity of the helicopter in vector
notation?
