What is the speed of boat in still water?

Statement I: The boat can cover 16 km downstream distance in 2 hours.

Statement II: Speed of the stream is two-fifth the speed of boat in still water.

Statement III: The boat can cover 24 km upstream distance in 6 hours.

Let speed of boat = u, and stream = v From I: u + v= 16/2 = 8 km/hr From II: v = 2u/5 From III: u – v = 24/6 = 4 So solving I and II ‘u’ can be found. Similarly by solving II and III and by solving I and III
