A boat goes downstream covers the distance between two ports in 96 minutes.While it covers the same distance upstream in 120 minutes,if the speed of the

stream is 1 km/hr.Find the speed of boat in still water.


Let speed of boat be X kmph.
down stream- in 96 minute boat will travel 96/60(X+1)km
upstream -in  120 min boat will travel  120/60(X-1)km
As per question 96/60(X+1)=120/60(X-1)
                    ⇒96 X+96=120X-120
                    ⇒ 24X= 216
Speed of boat 9 kmph

It is nine because 96-120is 24 and iy divides by 4
