Question description

A man is riding in a boat which is on a river's surface. The river's current runs due east at 4.00 m/s, and the boat's maximum speed in still water would be 12.0 m/s. The man decides to point his boat due north and runs the boat at full speed. What will be his speed as seen by a woman who is jogging at 3.50 m/s on a jogging trail which is aimed at 30.0o west of south?
