**2. (a) is the question I'm stuck with**

## Homework Equations

I know that 3m/s is the Velocity of the man relative to the water and the Velocity of the man is 8m/s and is represented by the vector pointing in the direction theta downstream but I just can't get my head around this question, probably something simple that's alluding me! I have part (b) completed and it is meant to be the more difficult of the two.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've attempted to add the vectors via triangle law but I can't seem to get it right my vector triangle always ends up having the hypotenuse as one of the shorter sides, any help would be appreciated!
