|A) 8 m/h||B) 5 m/h|
|C) 7 m/h||D) 6 m/h|
As the distance travelled is constant, the time taken is inversely proportional to speed.
Let 'u' be the speed of the current and 'v' be the speed of the boat.
Speed of the boat downstream = v + u & upstream = v - u
=> v+u/v-u = 30/20 => v/u = 5 => v = 5u
=> v + u = 6u = 10/20/60 miles/hr
=> 6u = 30 m/h
=> u = 5 m/h
