express the time T that it takes to go from the island to town as a function of the distance x from P to where the person lands the boat

An island is 6 miles from the nearest point P on a straight shoreline. A town is 12 miles down the shore from P. If a person can row a boat at an average speed of 2 miles per hour and the same person can walk 4 miles per hour, express the time T that it takes to go from the island to town as a function of the distance x from P to where the person lands the boat.
how long will it take to travel from the island to town if the person lands the boat 3 miles from P.
