Boat and Stream Questions:

### boats and streams tricks:

1. If the boat is moving in the direction of the current, the two speeds should be added.
2. Subtract both speeds as the boat is moving in the opposite direction.

#### boat and stream math:

Important Formulas :
Suppose,
The speed of the boat towards the stream = a
The boat speeds in the opposite direction to the current = b
1 ) The speed of the boat in slow water = ( a + b ) / 2.
2 ) Flow Speed = ( a – b ) / 2.

#### boats and streams problems :

1) 30 km / hr in the direction of a boat flow. It travels at a speed of 24 km / hr against the current. So speed up the slow water flow of the boat?
Ans. :
The speed of the boat in slow water = ( a + b ) / 2.
= ( 30 + 24 ) / 2
= 54 / 2.
= 27 km/hr.
Flow Speed = ( a – b ) / 2.
= ( 30 – 24 ) / 2
= 6 / 2
= 3 km/hr.

2) 12 km / hr in the direction of a boat flow. It travels at a speed of 8 km / hr against the current. So speed up the slow water flow of the boat?
Ans :
The speed of the boat in slow water = ( a + b ) / 2.
= ( 12 + 8 ) / 2
= 20 / 2.
= 10 km/hr.
Flow Speed = ( a – b ) / 2.
= ( 12 – 8 ) / 2
= 4 / 2
= 2 km/hr.

#### Word Problems :

3) If a person swims 42 km in the direction of the current and 30 km in the opposite direction of the current every 6 hours, then calculate the speed of the current.
Ans. :
The speed of man towards the stream = 42 / 6 = 7 km/hr.
Man’s velocity in the opposite direction of flow = 30 / 6 = 5 km/hr.
Flow Speed = ( 7 – 5 ) / 2 = 2 / 2 = 1 km/hr.

4) A person swims in the direction of the stream at a speed of 15 km / hr. If the velocity of flow is 3 km / hr, So what is the speed of that person in the opposite direction of the current ?
Ans. :
Suppose a person speeds up against the current = x
The velocity of the person towards the stream = 15 km / hr.
Flow Speed = 3 km/hr.
Flow speed = ( velocity in the direction of flow ) – ( velocity in the opposite direction of flow )  / 2.
3 = ( 15 – x ) / 2
6 = 15 – x
x = 15 – 6
x = 9.
