A person going for a morning jog on the deck of a cruise ship is running toward the bow (front) of the ship at 2.2 while the ship is moving ahead at 6.8 .

1. What is the velocity of the jogger relative to the water?


2. Later, the jogger is moving toward the stern (rear) of the ship. What is the jogger's velocity relative to the water now?

    haha this one had me stuck for a while as well, but it is really easy. All you have to do is add the two velocitys for the first answer (because if the ship is moveing 6.8 m/s and you are running with the ship then you will add 2.2 m/s and you will get your answer.) and if you are running against the ship (opposite direction of where the ship is going) then you would simply subtract.
