Homework Help: Math

Posted by Nikki on Sunday, September 5, 2010 at 12:56pm.

Jane is 2mi offshore in a boat and wishes to reach a coastal village 6mi down a straight shoreline from the point nearest the boat. She can row 2mph and can walk 5mph. Where should she land her boat to reach the village in the least amount of time?

I'm totally stumped by this question. So far I have the picture of the problem, and that's about it. Help please?!

Thank you
