Question

. The fisherman's mass is 79 kg, and the boat's is 126 kg. The fisherman and boat are initially at rest when the fisherman throws a package of mass

m = 15 kg

horizontally to the right with a speed of

vi = 4.9 m/s.

What is the velocity of the boat after the package is thrown? Neglect any resistance force from the water. (Give the magnitude in m/s, and select the correct direction from the options given.) 

What is the direction of the boat?
