# Two radio transmitters positioned 300 mi apart along the shore send simultaneous signals to a ship that is 200 mi offshore, sailing parallel to the shoreline. The signal from transmitter S reaches the ship 200 microseconds later than the signal

Two radio transmitters positioned 300 mi apart along the shore send simultaneous signals to a ship that is 200 mi offshore, sailing parallel to the shoreline. The signal from transmitter S reaches the ship 200 microseconds later than the signal from transmitter T. The signals travel at a speed of 186,000 miles per second, or 0.186 mile per microsecond. Find the equation of the hyperbola with foci S and T on which the ship is located.
