A man can row 40 km upstream and 55 km downstream in 13 hours. Also, he can row 30 km upstream and 44 km downstream in 10 hours. Find the speed of the man in still water and the speed of the current.
(1) 5 (2) 3
(3) 6 (4) 4

how to solve this

• ghazala

hi vineetha,

in this problem the time and distance is given, so we use time=(distance/speed).
let speed of upstream=x.
let speed of downstream=y.
for 40km upstream, the time=40/x.
for 55km downstream, time=55/y.

acc to question, (40/x)+(55/y)=13.

similarly, (30/x)+(44/y)=10.

put 1/x=u and 1/y=v.

eq(1) and (2) will be

40u+55v=13.
30u+44v=10.

solving above equations, we get u=1/5 and v=1/11.
and as x=1/u, so x=5 and similarly y=11.

now we know that speed of man in still water=(speed in downstream+speed in upstream)/2
speed of man in still water=(11+5)/2=8.

and speed of the current=(speed in downstream-speed in upstream)/2
speed of current=(11-5)/2=3
