LORAN (long distance radio navigation) for aircraft and ships use synchronized pulses transmitted by widely separated transmitting stations.

LORAN (long distance radio navigation) for aircraft and ships use synchronized pulses transmitted by widely separated transmitting stations. These pulses travel at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second). The difference in the times of arrival of these pulses at an aircraft or ship is constant on a hyperbola having the transmitting stations as foci. Assume that two stations, 300 miles apart, are positioned on a rectangular coordinate system at (-150, 0) and (150, 0) and that a ship is traveling on a path with coordinates (x,75). Find the x-coordinate of the position of the ship if the time difference between the pulses from the transmitting stations is 1000 microseconds (0.001 second).
