# The ship

The ship went at the upstream speed of 20 km/h in relation to water. The river flows at a speed of 10 km/h. After half an hour, he stopped and returned downstream to the starting point. How long does it take back when even if the downstream speed of the ship is 20 km/h concerning water?

- The river

The river flows at 4 km/h. A boat can go downstream thrice as fast as upstream. Find the speed of the boat in still water. - Timber log

The ship goes from point x to y. Downstream it takes 4 hours, and upstream 6 hours. How long does it take from a point x to y a log? - Downstream 81577

The water in the river has a speed of 4.8 km/h relative to the bank. A boat in still water has a speed of 12.6 km/h. a) What is the boat's speed relative to the shore if it is sailing downstream and upstream of the river? b) What path will the boat travel - Steamship

Between the two ports on the river is going steamship. The journey there and back takes 8:42. Downstream steamship traveling at 20 km/h, upstream 9 km/h. What is the distance between the ports?

- The cruise ship

The cruise ship speeds 12 km/h at a calm surface. When we sailed 45 km along the river and 45 km back, it took us exactly 8 hours. Which (constant) speed of flow of the river? - Tourist Jirka

The distance between points A and B is 13.5 km. Jirka went from point A to point B unknown speed and for an unknown period. Back to point A went slower by 3 km/h, meaning it went 20 minutes more. How long does Jirka take the return journey? - Water current speed.

Two cities along the river are 100 km apart. The powerboat downstream runs for 4 hours, upstream for 10 hours. Determines the river's current speed.
