Assume thedistance units in the plane are "feet" and the time units are "seconds". In particular, the ant is initially at the point A=(1,0). A spider is locatedat the point S=(3,0) on the x-axis. The spider plans to move along the tangential line pictured at a constant rate. Assume the spider startsmoving at the same time as the ant. Finally, assume that the spider catches the ant at the tangency point P the second time the ant reachesP.
