# Reds v Blues

**Geometry**Level pending

A red missile is moving towards C through point X at 340.29 metres per second. At point X, the red missile is equidistant to cannons A and B. Cannons A and B are 58 degrees right and left, respectively, of X’s direction.

Red base Y is equidistant to cannons A and D. Cannons A and D are 58 degrees left and right, respectively, of the direction YT.

Cannon B must shoot at Red base Y to win the war. Missile X must reach Blue base C to win the war. If Cannon B starts turning at the same time as the red missile passes over point X, one side will win.

**By how many seconds will this side win?**
