A boat can travel with a speed of 13 km/hr in still water. If the speed of the stream is 4 km/hr, find the time taken by the boat to go 68 km downstream.

A. 2 hours B. 3 hours C. 4 hours D. 5 hours

A man's speed with the current is 15 km/hr and the speed of the current is 2.5 km/hr. The man's speed against the current is:

A. 8.5 km/hr B. 9 km/hr C. 10 km/hr D. 12.5 km/hr

A boat running upstream takes 8 hours 48 minutes to cover a certain distance, while it takes 4 hours to cover the same distance running downstream. What is the ratio between the speed of the boat and speed of the water current respectively?

A. 2 : 1 B. 3 : 2 C. 8 : 3 D. Cannot be determined E. None of these

A motorboat, whose speed in 15 km/hr in still water goes 30 km downstream and comes back in a total of 4 hours 30 minutes. The speed of the stream (in km/hr) is:

A. 4 B. 5 C. 6 D. 10

In one hour, a boat goes 11 km/hr along the stream and 5 km/hr against the stream. The speed of the boat in still water (in km/hr) is:

A. 3 km/hr B. 5 km/hr C. 8 km/hr D. 9 km/hr

• Downstream/Upstream:

In water, the direction along the stream is called downstream. And, the direction against the stream is called upstream.

• If the speed of a boat in still water is u km/hr and the speed of the stream is v km/hr, then:

Speed downstream = (u + v) km/hr.

Speed upstream = (u - v) km/hr.

• If the speed downstream is a km/hr and the speed upstream is b km/hr, then:

Speed in still water = 1 (a + b) km/hr.

2 Rate of stream = 1 (a - b) km/hr.
