Question: The difference between downstream speed and upstream speed is 3 km/h and the total time taken during upstream and downsream is 3 hours. What is the downstream speed, if the downstream and upstream distance are 3 km each?

Question: A boat which sails at 10 km/h in still water starts chasing, from 10 km behind, another one which sails at 4 km/h in the upstream direction. After how long will it catchup if the stream is flowing at 2 km/h:

Question: A motor boat went downstream for 120 km and immediately retured. It took the boat 15 hours to cmplete the round trip. If the speed of the river were twice as high, the trip downstream and back would take 24 hours.
What is the speed of the boat in still water?

Question: A motor boat went downstream for 120 km and immediately retured. It took the boat 15 hours to cmplete the round trip. If the speed of the river were twice as high, the trip downstream and back would take 24 hours.
What is the speed of the stream?

Question: A boat sails 15 km of river towards upstream in 5 hours. How long will it take to cover the same distance downstream, if the speed of current is one-fourth the speed of the boat in still water:

Question: A boat takes 5 hours more while going back in upstream than in downsteam. If the distance between two places is 24 km and the speed of boat in still water be 5.5 km/h. What must be the speed of boat in still water so that it can row downstream, 24 km, in 4 hours?

Question: A boat takes 7 hours to go from P to R, through a midpint Q, but it takes 8 hours to go from P to Q and then return from Q to P, How long it would take to go from R to P ?
