Question

jane took 20min to drive her boat upstream to waterski at her
favorite spot. Coming back later in the day, at the same boat
speed, took her 15min. if the current in that part of the river is
3km per hr, what was the boat speed in still water?

Answer #1

**Let boat speed in still water = xkm/h**

**given current speed in river = 3km/h**

**so,upstram speed = x-3km/h**

**so downstram speed= x+3
km/h**

**and take total distance at one side = d km**

**given ,time upstream = 20min = 20/60hour**

**given, time downstram = 15 min =
15/60hour **

**so, first eqn is**

so, d/(x-3) = 20/60

so, 3d = x-3

so, d = (x-3)/3

& second eqn is

so, d/(x+3 ) = 15/60

so, 4d = x+3

so, d = (x+3)/4

then from upper first eqn take d value & put here

so, (x-3)/3 = (x+3)/4

so, 4(x-3) = 3(x+3)

so, 4x-12 = 3x+9

so , 4x-3x = 12+9

so, x = 21

so, FINALLY speed of boat in still water = 21 km/h ANS

5) Two high-speed ferries leave at the same time from a city to
go to the same island. The first ferry, the Cat, travels at
36 miles per hour. The second ferry, the Bird, travels at 23
miles per hour. In how many hours will the two ferries be 26 miles
apart?
The ferries will be 26 miles apart after ...hour(s).

The
current of a river is 3 miles per hour. A boat travels to a point
16 miles upstream and back in 4 hours. What is the speed of the
boat in still water ? The speed of the boat in still water is
?

The current of a river is 4 miles per hour. A boat travels to a
point 30 miles upstream and back in 4 hours. What is the speed of
the boat in still water?

It took a crew 3 h 20 min to row 6 km upstream and back again.
If the rate of flow of the stream was 8 km/h, what was the rowing
speed of the crew in still water?

Mary and Sally have
decided to spend their vacation time on a boat in a river.
Unfortunately, Sally liked a recent Instagram post from another of
her friends that Mary didn't like, turning the two into bitter
enemies. Now each has their boat on their own river. Mary has her
boat in a river with a current that is 8.000 km/hr to the south.
Mary's boat has a speed of 12.00 km/hr in still water. Sally has

A boat, whose speed in still water is 2.40 m/s , must cross a
285-m-wide river and arrive at a point 118 m upstream from where it
starts (Figure 1). To do so, the pilot must head the boat at a 45∘
upstream angle.
What is the speed of the river's current?

Tina can grow a boat at 2.60 mi/h in still water. She
needs to cross a river that is 1.20 mi wide with a current flowing
at 1.90 mi/h. Not having her calculator she guesses that to go
straight across she should head upstream at an angle of 25.0° from
the direction straight across the river. What is her speed with
respect to the starting point on the bank?

Sheena can row a boat at 2.40 mi/h in still water. She needs to
cross a river that is 1.20 mi wide with a current flowing at 1.60
mi/h. Not having her calculator ready, she guesses that to go
straight across, she should head upstream at an angle of 25.0° from
the direction straight across the river.
A) What is her speed with respect to the starting point on the
bank?
B) How long does it take her to cross...

QUESTION 1
A boat is able to move over still water at 19 m/s. If the boat
makes a round trip to a town which is 3.4 km upstream and back to
the starting point and the river flows at 9.4 m/s, find the time
required to complete the round trip.
The time of the round trip with the river current, t1
=
If the water is still (meaning there is no current) then the
time of the round trip...
