In his rowboat, Pierre heads directly across a river at a speed of 10 km/h. The river is 120m wide and is flowing at 6 km/h.

Suppose Pierre wants to row directly across the river. At what angle relative to the shore should he head?

I would really appreciate help with this question, since I know that it is suppose to be straight forward and for some reason I just cant solve it! must be because I didn't have much of a sleep.

thanks alot
