A boat is trying to cross a river that is 2 miles wide, by going straight across. The speed of the boat is 25 mph, but the current is pushing the boat downstream at 17 mph. How long will it take the boat to cross the river and how far downstream from the originl starting point will the boat end up

2m / 25 m/hr = .......    time to cross

 

(time to cross) * 17 m/hr   = distance downstream
