# Aboat goes 240 miles downstream in the same time it can go 160 miles upstream.peed of the current is 5 miles per hour. what is the speed of the boat in stillwater? ​

25mph po ang sagot

Step-by-step explanation:

=

240 (x - 5)= 160 (x+5)

240x - 1200 = 160x +80

80x =2000

x =25mph

Step-by-step explanation:

x = speed of the boat

from the formula

d=st

d is distance

s is speed

t is time

t = d/s

upstream: (the boat is moving against the current)

t1 = 160/(x - 5)

downstream: (the boat is moving along with the current)

t2 = 240/(x + 5)

since t1 is equal to t2

160/(x - 5) = 240/(x + 5) (cross multiply)

160(x + 5) = 240(x - 5)

160x + 800 = 240x - 1200

x = 25 km/hr
