A 74-kg fisherman in a 129-kg boat throws a package of mass
m = 15 kg
horizontally toward the right with a speed of
vi = 4.7 m/s
as in the figure below. Neglecting water resistance, and assuming the boat is at rest before the package is thrown, find the velocity of the boat after the package is thrown.
