A swimmer is capable of swimming 0.45 m/s in still water.
(a) If she aims her body directly across a 75 m-wide river whose current is 0.30 m/s, how far downstream (from a point opposite her starting point) will she land?
(b) How long will it take her to reach the other side?

Help is desperately needed. Ive been sick and missed school for 4 days and my teacher is still making the assignment due for me the same day as everyone else!

    How long does it take to swim 75m at.45m/s? Take that time, and find the distance he was swept downstream(.45*time).
