A swimmer is training in a river. The current flows at 1.99 metres per second and the swimmer swims upstream a distance of 153 metres before swimming back to the starting point. If the total time for the swim is 192.0 seconds, what is the swimmer's speed relative to the water?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been stuck on this question for a while now just can't seem to get it out? Tried rearranging equations but still can't get to the answer of 2.94 m/s?

Any help would be greatly appreciated thankyou
