Huck Finn walks North across a raft at a speed of 1.0 m/s while the raft is traveling east at a speed of 2.7 m/s relative to the river bank. What is the velocity of Huck relative to the river bank? Well can't really think of any I'm REALLY new to physics and I was stumped from the start. Apparently the answer is 2.9 m/s but I'm absolutely lost. Anyone help out a clueless fool?
