Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Nicole on Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 5:15pm.

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?
This is what I did but it is wrong. Can someone help me?
20.3/0.6=29
