# 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 if it first moves 2.5 h upstream and then 1.5 h downstream?

A boat can travel with a speed of 13 km/h in still water.If the speed speed of stream is 4 km/h, then find the time taken 1) to go 68 km downstream . 2) to go 63 km upstream . - 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. - Relative 67684

The boat moves along the river at a speed of v1 = 5km. h-1 and upstream v2 = 2km. h-1. What is the current P's and boat L's speed relative to the water? - A boat

A boat covers 20 km in an hour downstream and covers the same distance in 2 hours upstream. Then, find the speed of the boat in still water and the speed of the stream.
