Question

A woman is riding a jet ski at a speed of 30 m/s and notices a seawall straight ahead. The farthest she can lean the craft in order to make a turn is 20 degrees. This situatuion is like that of a car on a curve that is banked at an angle of 20 degrees. If she tries to make the turn without slowing down, what is the minimum distance from the seawall that she can begin making her turn and still avoid a crash?
