The speed of a boat in still water is 32km/hr and the speed of the current is 8km/hr. It takes a total of 15hours to row to upstream from Point A to B and downstream from Point B to C. If the distance between A to C is two-fifth the distance between B and C then what is the distance between B and C? (Where BC < AB)

Let the distance from B to C be xkm ∴ A to C = 2x/5 km Upstream speed = 32 – 8 = 24 km/hr Downstream speed = 32 + 8 = 40km/hr Now, 7x/(5 × 24) + x/40 = 15 7x/120 + x/40 = 15 (7x + 3x)/120 = 15 x = 180 km

- If a man rows at the rate of 14 kmph in still water and his rate against the current is 5 kmph, then the man’s rate along the current is:
- A boy can swim a certain distance downstream in 5 hours and return in 7 hours. If the rate of stream is 4 kmph then what is the speed of boy in still water?
- The speed of a boat in downstream is 20% more than speed of boat in still water. If the boat travels a distance of 90 km upstream in 15 hours then find the time taken by the boat to cover a distance of 252 km in downstream.
- A man can row one quarters of a kilometer against the stream in 30/4 minutes and return in 5/2 minutes. The speed of the man in still water is:
- If a man rows at the rate of 17 kmph in still water and his rate against the current is 7 kmph, then find the man’s speed with downstream.
- Speed of a boat in still water to speed of boat in upstream is 8: 7. If the boat can travel 450 km in downstream in 10 hours, then find the time taken by the boat to cover 34 km in still water.
- A man can row at 36 km/hr in still water. In a stream which is flowing at 12 km/hr, it takes him 3 hrs to a place and back. How far is the place?
- Speed of a boat in still water to speed of boat in upstream is 10:7. If the boat can travel 390 km in downstream in 5 hours, then find the time taken by the boat to cover 18 km in still water.
- Speed of a boat in still water is 15 kmph and speed of stream is 12 kmph. A man rows to a place at a distance of 81 km and come back to starting point. The total time taken by him is:
- A man can row upstream at 18 km/hr and downstream at 24 km/hr. Find the man’s rate in still water and the rate of the current.
