## Homework Statement

A swimmer maintains a speed of 0.15 m/s relative to the water when swimming directly toward the opposite shore of a straight river with a current that flows at 0.75 m/s.

(a) How far downstream is the swimmer carried in 1.5 minutes?

(b) What is the velocity of the swimmer relative to an observer on shore?

## Homework Equations

I'm not sure, sorry.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know this involves relative velocity and maybe vectors, but I am unsure. Please help.

Thank you very much.
