Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Following is a question from "Problems in General Physics - Irodov". I think I should be able to solve this problem but I don't get a part of the question. Wondering if somebody can clarify what does " velocity which is n=2 times less than the river flow velocity" means is mathematical terms.

Question:

A boat moves relative to the water with a velocity which is n=2 times less than the river flow velocity.At what angle to the stream direction must the boat move to minimize drifting
