## Homework Statement

If a river is going 6 km/hr relative to the ground, a boat is going 14 km/hr relative to the river, and a man is jumping from one end of the boat to the other at 6 km/hr relative to the river. What is the speed of the man relative to the ground?

I'm stuck between the answers: 14 km/hr and 26 km/hr.

They are all moving in the same direction

## Homework Equations

None that I'm aware of

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well if you subtract:

River - Ground=6 km/hr

Boat - River= 8 km/hr

Man - River= 0 km/hr so, it equals 14 km/hr

I got 26 km/hr by just adding them together[/B]
