Re: VCE Further Maths Question Thread!

hey! i'm not entirely sure if these questions are in the further maths course – i've checked the study design but it's a bit vague on latitudes/longitudes so i was wondering if someone would be able to help me double check  :D

if they are, would someone be able to help me out please as i'm not sure on how to do them :L (the fact that both the latitudes and longitudes are different is messing with my head :()

thanks very much!

Find the distance around the parallel of latitude for the following locations:
a) X: latitude: 32šS, longitude 50šE ; Y: latitude 32šN, longitude 80šE
b) X: latitude: 12šS, longitude 30šE ; Y: latitude 12šN, longitude 80šE

note* my textbook is possibly the one with many typos because i've found some errors previously, so if someone has an updated textbook and would be able to check (19B q19b and c), that'd be awesome! tysmm

You cannot find the distance around the “parallel of latitude” between any two points that are not on the same parallel of latitude.
These two questions are beyond the scope of this course which covers only distances along a parallel (ie between two locations with the same latitude) or along a meridian (ie between two locations with the same longitude).
