Q: A boat that can travel 2.5 m/s on still water is now on a river that flows due East at a velocity of 2.0 m/s. What is the velocity of this point with reference to a point on the shore when the bot is headed 45.0° W of N (135°)?
Thanks. Please show work
I think the answer is 1.8m/s 6.30° E of N or something around that. Problem is I have no clue how to get that answer and I've spent hours on it, I swear.
