14.

A man can row at 5 kmph in still water. If the velocity of current is 1 kmph and it takes him 1 hour to row to a place and come back, how far is the place?

**Answer: Option 'A'**

**If the speed of a boat in still water is xkm/hr and the speed of the stream is ykm/hr, then:**

Speed downstream = (x+ y) km/hr.

Speed upstream = (x- y) km/hr.

Speed downstream = (5 + 1) kmph = 6 kmph.

Speed upstream = (5 - 1) kmph = 4 kmph.

Let the required distance be x km.

Distance / Speed = Time

Given, Time fordownstream+ upstream = 1 hour

Then, x / 6 + x / 4 = 1

=> 2x + 3x = 12

=> 5x = 12

=> x = 2.4 km

Thus, the required distance =2.4 km

15.

Given, Speed of Boat = 10 mph
Then, **

23.

A boat goes 24 km upstream and 28 km downstream in 6 hrs. If it goes 30 km upstream and 21 km downstream in 6 hrs and 30 mins, find the speed of the stream.

24.

A motorboat whose speed is 15 km/hr in still water goes 30 km downstream and comes back in 4 hrs and 30 mins. Determine the speed of the stream.

**Answer: Option 'C'**

**Let the speed of the stream be xkm/hr.
Given, speed of boat = 15 km/hr
Then,
Speed downstream = Speed of boat + speed of stream
= (15 +x) km/hr,
Speed upstream = Speed of boat - speed of stream
= (15 -x) km/hr.
Given, Distance covered by boat downstream =30
So,Distance covered by boat upstream =30
Given, Time for upstream and downstream = 4 hr 30 mins = 4 (1/2) hr
W.K.T : Distance / speed = Time
=> (Upstream Distance/ Speedupstream) + (Downstream Distance/ Speeddownstream) = Total Time
=> [30 / (15 + x)] +[30 / (15 - x)] = 4 (1/2)
=> 30 [1/ (15 + x)] +[1/ (15 - x)] = 9 / 2
=> 30 [(15 - x) +(15 + x) / (15^2 - x^{2})] = 9 / 2
=> 30 [30 / (225 -x^{2})] = 9 / 2
=> 900 /(225 -x^{2}) =9 / 2
=> 900 × (2 / 9) =(225 -x^{2})
=> 200 = 225 -x^{2}
=> x^{2} = 25
=> x = 5
Thus,speed of the stream = x =5 km/hr**

28.

A man can row 30 km upstream and 44 km downstream in 10 hrs. It is also known that he can row 40 km upstream and 55 km downstream in 13 hrs.Find the speed of the man in still water.

**Answer: Option 'C'**

**Let the speed of the man in still water be x kmph and speed of the stream be y kmph
Downstream speed = x+y kmph and
Upstream Speed = x-y kmph
=>30 / (x-y) + 44 / (x+y) = 10 and
40 / (x-y) + 55 / (x+y) = 13
Let 1/ (x+y) = u and 1/ (x-y) = v
----> 30 u + 44 v = 10 ---> multiply this eqn by 4
----> 40 u + 55 v = 13 ---> multiply this eqn by3
Solving these two linear equation we get u = 1/5 and v = 1/11
----> x - y = 5 and x+y = 11
Solving these two linear equation we get
-----> x = 8 and y = 3
