Homework Help: college physics

Posted by Kelly on Monday, September 20, 2010 at 7:20pm.

A swimmer is heading straight for the other shore of a river with a velocity of vs=0.7 m/s relative to the water, but is carried away by the current, which has a velocity of vr=0.3 m/s. It takes her 20.3 s to get across. How far downstream does she end up?
Can someone please help me solve this problem?
