The Brainliest Answer!

And, speed of boat = 10 km/h

Speed of the boat along upstream = (10-x) km/h

A/q,

The boat goes 37.5 km opposite to the stream in 5 hours.

speed = distance ÷ time

speed of boat opposite to the stream = 37.5÷5

or, 10-x = 37.5/5

or, x = 10-37.5/5

or, x = (50-37.5)/5

or, x = 12.5/5 = 2.5 km/h

Therefore speed of the stream = 2.5 km/h
