okay, here's the problem as stated:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A rectangular boat is 2m long and 0.8m wide and 0.2m high and weights 75kg. If the boat is in fresh water, find (a) the amount that it will sink into the water when Squink (98kg) jumps in, and (b) the number of 2kg fish he can catch before the boat sinks.

If I can get the first part figured out, the second part sh ouldn't be that difficult, but I can't for the life of me figure out the first part.

any help would be greatly appreciated!
