a) If the woman heads directly across the river, how far downstream is she swept when she reaches the opposite bank?

d1= ?

b) If she wants to be swept a smaller distance downstream, she heads a bit upstream. Suppose she orients her body in the water at an angle of 37° upstream (where 0° means heading straight across, as in part (a)), how far downstream is she swept before reaching the opposite bank?

d2 = ?

c) For the conditions of part (b), how long does it take for her to reach the opposite bank?

For this question, I just don't know how to start it. I mean there's no angles. I'm confused because I feel there's not much information like time and all that. I guess I just don't know how to approach this.
