The Brainliest Answer!

motor boat sped= 18 km\hr

distance travel speed=24 km

speed of boat upstream =18-x km/hr

time taken travel upstream =24\18-x

the distance travelled upstream=24 km

speed of the boat down stream=18+x km/hr

24/18-x = 1 +24/18+x

ans. 6 km/ hr

motor boat sped= 18 km\hr

distance travel speed=24 km

speed of boat upstream =18-x km/hr

time taken travel upstream =24\18-x

the distance travelled upstream=24 km

speed of the boat down stream=18+x km/hr

from dis we equate to get 6kmph
