a) 8: 3

c) 7: 4

d) 2: 1

e) None of these

10) A man takes to row 80 km along the stream is half of the time taken to row against the stream. Find the speed of the boat in still water if the speed of stream is 6 km/hr?

a) 24 km/hr

b) 20 km/hr

c) 18 km/hr

d) 12 km/hr

e) None of these

Speed of downstream = D/T = 55/(66/60) = 55*(60/66) = 50 km/hr

The ratio of the speed of the boat in still water to the speed of the stream

= > 4: 1 (4x, x)

5x = 50

X = 10

Speed of upstream = 4x – x = 3x = 30 km/hr

Distance = 72 km

Time = D/S = 72/30 = 2 2/5 hr = 2 hour 24 min

Speed of downstream = (20 + 8) = 28 km/hr

Speed of upstream = (20-8) = 12 km/hr

According to the question,

[x/12 – x/28] = 8

16x/(12*28) = 8

= > x= 168 km

Let the speed of boat in still water be x,

According to the question,

96/60 = 72/(x – 8) – 72/(x + 8)

96/60 = 72(1/(x-8) – 1/(x+8))

x2 – 64 = 720

x2 = 784

x = 28

The speed of boat in still water = 28 km/hr

The ratio of the speed of the boat in still water to the speed of the stream = 9: 5 (9x, 5x)

Speed of downstream = 9x + 5x = 14x

Speed of upstream = 9x – 5x = 4x

Upstream speed = 4/(15/60) = 16 km/hr
4x = 16
x = 4
Downstream speed = 14*4 = 56 km/hr
Time = D/S = 28/56 = ½ hr = 30 min

Speed of upstream = (42*60)/63 = 40 km/hr

Speed of current: Speed of still water = 3: 7

Speed of upstream = Speed of boat in still water – speed of Current

40 = 4x

= > x = 10

Speed of current = 30 km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = 70 km/hr

Speed of downstream= Speed of boat in still water + speed of Current

= > 70 + 30 = 100 km/hr

Speed = 100 km/hr, Time = 42 minutes

Distance = 100*(42/60) = 70 km

Speed of downstream = 20 + 8 = 28 km/hr
Speed of upstream = 20 – 8 = 12 km/hr
Total time = 26 hours

If distance between A to B is x, then distance between B to C = x/2,
Time = Distance/Speed

x/28 + (x/2)/12 = 26

x/28 + x/24 = 26
52x/(28*24) = 26

x = (26*28*24)/52 = 336 km

The distance between A to B = 336 km

Speed of downstream = 16 + 6 = 22 km/hr
Speed of upstream = 16 – 6 = 10 km/hr
Let the distance travelled be x,
(x/22) + (x/10) = 8
X= 55 km

(Or)

Distance = Time *[(Speed of Still water2 – speed of Stream2)/(2*Speed of Still water)]

= > Distance = 8*[(162 – 62)/(2*16)]

= > Distance = 8*[(256 – 36)/32]

= > Distance = 55 km

Speed of downstream = 15 + 7 = 22 km/hr

Speed of upstream = 15 – 7 = 8 km/hr

According to the question,
7/2 =D/8 – D/22

7/2 = (22D – 8D)/(22*8)

D = 44 km

Let speed of upstream be x km/hr and that of downstream be y km/hr,
Then, distance covered upstream in 6 hrs 36 min = Distance covered downstream in 3 hrs.
x*(33/5) = 3y
y =11x/5
Required ratio = (y + x)/2 : (y – x)/2
= > 16x/10 : 6x/10
= > 8 : 3

Let us take the speed of the boat in still water be x km/hr,

80/(x+6) = 1/2*(80/(x-6))

2x – 12 = x + 6

X = 18

Speed of the boat in still water = 18 km/hr
