Turret From the aiming question, what is the difference between p+st = q+vt st=(q-p)+vt let q-p=w (st)^2=(w+vt)^2 (st)^2=w*w+2(w*v)t+(v*v)t^2 0=w*w+2(w*v)t+(v*v-s*s)t^2 and this p+st = q+vt 0=(q-p)+(v-s)t let q-p=w v-s=z 0=(w+zt)^2 w*w+2(z*w)t+(z*z)t^2 Why do I get two different looking solutions?

Turret Aiming Question From the aiming question from this site (http://www.reddit.com/r/gamedev/comment ... la/c7vbu2j) what is the difference between p+st = q+vt st=(q-p)+vt let q-p=w (st)^2=(w+vt)^2 (st)^2=w*w+2(w*v)t+(v*v)t^2 0=w*w+2(w*v)t+(v*v-s*s)t^2 and this p+st = q+vt 0=(q-p)+(v-s)t let q-p=w v-s=z 0=(w+zt)^2 w*w+2(z*w)t+(z*z)t^2 Why do I get two different equations? SORRY FOR DOUBLE POST, I ACCIDENTALLY PRESSED ENTER, AND THE FORUM DOESN'T LET ME EDIT
