Two people, one of mass 75 and the other of mass 65 , sit in a rowboat of mass 89 . With the boat initially at rest, the two people, who have been sitting at opposite ends of the boat, 2.6 apart from each other, now exchange seats. How far will the boat move? Express your answer using two significant figures.
