Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Kaan on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 3:13pm.

A boat’s speed in still water is 1.95m/s . The boat is to travel directly across a river whose current has speed 1.20m/s .
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.
