(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A dog wishes to swim across a slow-moving stream. The dog can swim at 2 m/s in calm water. The current velocity is 3 m/s. The distance directly across the stream is 50 m.

If the dog points himself directly across the stream how long will it take to get across the stream?

How far downstream will the current have carried the dog when the dog gets to the other side?

What was the dogs velocity relative to the bank from where the dog started?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

With a.) I'm given how fast the dog can swim and velocity of the stream? I need to find T.

b.) I don't know what they're asking :(

c.) I don't now what they're asking :(

Can you guys please break it down for me? I think with B you multiply velocity by time.
