Doesn't the problem state that Mr. Salmon is swimming upstream at 6 mph?
do I just subtract then?
I guess they want you to solve the rate he is moving with respect to land. So you would subtract, but not the total 3 mph since it is at an angle of 7 degrees rather than 0 degree (in direct opposition. I am guessing that you use cosine 7 degrees as a factor multiplying the three mph and subtracting the results. Just a SWAG!
