A Boat travel 80 km distance in downstream and 48 km upstream and the total time taken is 20 hours. The same boat travels 30 km distance in downstream as much time travel 12 km in upstream. Find the speed of boat in still water?

Let the speed of stream be x And speed of Boat be y Total time taken =80/(x+y) + 48/(x - y) = 20 ………………………. (i) And time taken for 30 km in downstream and 12 km in upstream is equal 30/(x + y) = 12/(x - y) 5x – 5y = 2x + 2y 3x = 7y x/y = 7/3 Now x = 7k and y = 3k Put the value of x and y in equation (i), 80/(7k + 3k) + 48/(7k - 3k) = 20 80/10k + 48/4k = 20 8/k + 12/k = 20 20/k = 20 k = 1 Therefore the speed of Boat in still water is 7 × 1 = 7 km/hr

- A boat covers 12 km upstream and 20km downstream in 4 hours while it covers 20km upstream and 12 km downstream in 4*1/2 hours. What is the velocity of current?
- A motorboat in still water travels at a speed of 40 km/hr. It goes 45 km upstream in 2 hour 15 minutes. The time taken by it to cover the same distance down the stream will be :
- A boat goes 52 km in upstream in 4 hours and takes 3 hours to complete a distance of 15 km in downstream. Find the speed of boat in still water.
- The speed of the stream is 10 km/h. Boat ‘A’ covers 150 km distance against the stream in 6 hours and boat ‘B’ covers 108 km distance against the stream in 6 hours. The speed of boat ‘B’ in still water is how much percent of the speed of boat ‘A’ in still water?
- The ratio of the speed of boats ‘A’ and ‘B’ in still water is 8:9, respectively. The speed of the current is 25% of the speed of boat ‘A’ in still water. If boat ‘A’ takes 8 hours to travel 640 km downstream, then find the time taken by boat ‘B’ to travel 168 km upstream and 880 km downstream. (Note: Both the boats are rowing in the same stream.)
- A boat goes 5 km an hour in still water, but takes twice as much time in going the same distance against the current. The speed of the current (in km/hour) is :
- 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)
- Find the total distance covered by boat in each upstream and downstream in 5 hours if the speed of boat in still water and speed of current is 25 km/h and 6 km/h respectively?
- A man can row 12 km/hr in still water. If the speed of the current is 3 km/hr, it takes 4 hours more in upstream than in the downstream for the same distance. The distance is
- Speed of a Motorboat in still water is 75kmph. If the motorboat travels 150 km along the stream in 1 hour 40 minutes, then the time taken by it to cover the same distance against the stream will be?
