Q:

# A man goes down stream with a boat to some destination and returns upstream to his original place in 5 hours. If the speed of the boat in still water and the strean are 10km/hr and 14km/hr respectively, the distance of the destination from the string place is

 A) 16 km B) 18 km C) 21 km D) 25 km

Explanation:

Let the distance covered be D km.

$D14+D6=5$

10D = 42 x 5 = 210

=> D = 21 km
