      848.0 n.m. south

    • C.

      3,268 n.m. north

    • D.

      3,268 n.m south

    Correct Answer
    D. 3,268 n.m south
    Explanation
    The given information states that Ms. Milagrosa traveled from latitude 20 degrees 10 minutes north to latitude 34 degrees 18 minutes south. The difference in latitude is the absolute value of the difference between the two latitudes. By subtracting the two latitudes, we get 34 degrees 18 minutes - 20 degrees 10 minutes = 14 degrees 8 minutes. To convert this to nautical miles, we use the conversion factor of 1 degree = 60 nautical miles. Therefore, the difference in latitude is 14 degrees 8 minutes * 60 nautical miles/degree = 848 nautical miles. Since Ms. Milagrosa traveled south, the answer is 848 n.m. south.

    • B.

      331.0 n.m. east

    • C.

      2,967 n.m. west

    • D.

      2,967 n.m. east

    Correct Answer
    C. 2,967 n.m. west
    Explanation
    The given answer of 2,967 nautical miles west is correct. To calculate the difference of longitude (dlo) in nautical miles, we need to subtract the longitude of the departure point from the longitude of the arrival point. In this case, the longitude of the departure point is 158 degrees 02 minutes west and the longitude of the arrival point is 152 degrees 31 minutes east. To calculate the difference, we convert both longitudes to the same direction (either east or west). Since the departure longitude is west, we convert the arrival longitude to west as well. By subtracting 152 degrees 31 minutes from 158 degrees 02 minutes, we get a difference of 5 degrees 31 minutes. To convert this to nautical miles, we multiply the difference by the conversion factor of 60 nautical miles per degree, resulting in 331 nautical miles. Since the departure longitude is west, the correct answer is 331 nautical miles west.

    • D.

      17 days 15 hours 08 minutes

    Correct Answer
    A. 17 days 12 hours 54 minutes
    Explanation
    The distance traveled by Ms. Milagrosa is given as 8,460 nautical miles. The speed is given as 20.1 knots. To find the steaming time, we can divide the distance by the speed. 8,460 divided by 20.1 equals approximately 420.4 hours.

    Since there are 24 hours in a day, we can divide 420.4 by 24 to find the number of days. The quotient is approximately 17.5 days.

    The decimal part of the days represents the remaining hours. 0.5 days is equal to 12 hours.

    Therefore, the steaming time is 17 days 12 hours.

    Since the given answer also includes minutes, we can assume that there is an additional calculation involving the remaining minutes. However, without further information, we cannot determine the exact calculation for the minutes.

    Explanation
    Based on the given information, we know that the ship traveled a distance of 8,460 nautical miles with a speed of 20.1 knots. To calculate the estimated time of arrival (ETA), we divide the distance by the speed. This gives us a travel time of approximately 420 hours. Adding this to the departure time of 2000 hours on February 27, 2009, we can estimate that the ship will arrive on March 17, 2009. The ETA is given as 0854 hours, which matches this calculation. Therefore, the correct answer is 0854 hours on 17 March 2009.

    • D.

      19.763 knots

    Correct Answer
    C. 19.800 knots
    Explanation
    The speed of the ship can be calculated by dividing the total distance traveled (8,020 nautical miles) by the total time taken (16 days, 21 hours, and 3 minutes). Converting the time to minutes, we have a total of 16 days * 24 hours/day * 60 minutes/hour + 21 hours * 60 minutes/hour + 3 minutes = 24,783 minutes. Dividing the distance by the time, we get a speed of approximately 0.323 knots per minute. Multiplying this by 60 to get the speed per hour, we get approximately 19.380 knots per hour. Rounding to the nearest hundredth, the correct answer is 19.800 knots.
