This problem I'm not sure where to begin so if someone could just give me a hint...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A boat heads directly across a river with a velocity of 12m/s. If the river flows at 6.0m/s find the magnitude and direction (with respect to the shore) if the boat's resultant velocity.

I'm not sure how to find what way the direction is going without some kind of direction that is already given.
