a boat goes 24km upstream and 28km downstream in 6hrs . it goes 30km upstream and 21 km downstream in 6 1/2 hrs . find the speed of boat in still water and also speed of stream

Asked by Shailly Pandey(student), on 23/6/12

#### Answers

let the speed of the boat upstream =(x-y)km/hr

and the speed of the boat downstream=(x+y)km/hr

A.T.Q

24/(X-Y)+28/(X+Y)=6 -(1.) 30/(X-Y)+21/(X+Y)=61/2 -(2.)

LET 1/(X-Y)=U &1/(X+Y)=V

24U+28V=6 -(1)

30U+21V=61/2 -(2.)

BY ELIMINATION PROCESS-:

720U+840
