My :banana Banana boat travels at a speed of 24 km/hr in still water. If the stream were to flow at 6 km/hr speed, it takes the boat 4 hrs to make a round trip which is one way upstream and the other way downstream. What is the distance between the points?

a. 90 kms
b. 180
c. 22.5

D, 45 km . let the distance be x km downstream speed = 24+6=30 kmph and upstream = 24-6=18 kmph and we know the time for the trip and so x/30 + x/18 = 4 and so x=45 km

Solved it slightly different.

The distance up and down is the same so...

Down = Up
30T = 18(4-T)
T = 3/2
30T = 30(3/2) = 45
