The speed of sound in water is 1498 m/s. A sonar signal is sent from a ship at a point just below the water surface and 1.80 s later the relfected signal is detected. How deep is the ocean beneath the ship?

If "h" is the ocean depth how far did the sound have to travel so that the reflected signal was heard?
