(a) If you choose to minimize the time you spend in the water, in what direction should you head? ____° from the direction of the stream

(b) How far downstream will you be carried? ______m

(c) If you choose to minimize the distance downstream that the river carries you, in what direction should you head? ____° from the direction of the stream

(d) How far downstream will you be carried? _____m
