**Steve**, Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 11:05amIf we let +x be eastward, we have

<19.98,13.99> or, approximately

<20,14>

Add that to <0,-10>

and the resultant velocity is

<20,4>

The (eastward) speed with which the boat is crossing the river is 20m/s.

Not sure whether I interpreted your language correctly, as it is somewhat ambiguous. If I got it wrong, fix the numbers and follow the steps.
