Determine the speed of the boat with respect to the shore.

Despite, I did it like taking the sqrt (1.95^2+1.20^2)

is there something wrong I did?

Thank you for your care.

The boat has to head upstream, and that velocity is countered by the stream:

v=sqrt(1.95^2-1.2^2)

So the slant angle reduces the speed across.
