Cruise liner

Cruise liner runs along the river between points A and B. The journey downstream takes 40 minutes 1 hour upriver. The flow rate of the river is 3 km/h. What is the speed of cruise liner?

Result

v =  15 km/h

Solution:


(v+3)*40/60=(v-3)*1

20v = 300

v = 15

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.








Leave us a comment of example and its solution (i.e. if it is still somewhat unclear...):

Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation?
