A)97
B)42.23
C)84
D)48

A)3 hrs 30 min
B)4 hrs 15 min
C)4 hrs 40 min
D)4 hrs 25 min
E)None of these
3)The speed of a boat in still water is 22 km/hr & the speed of the stream is 2 km/hr .The time taken by the boat to travel from P to Q downstream is 32 minutes less than the time taken by the same boat to travel from Q to R upstream.

Q & R , what is the distance between P & Q (in km) ?
A)150
B)100
C)175
D)200
E)None of these
4)A boat takes 19 hours to travel downstream from point A to point B & coming back to point C midway between A & B .If the speed of the stream is 4 km/hr and the speed of the boat in still water is 14 km/hr, what is the distance between A & B ?

Ans.

1.E-50)
Let the distance from Q to R is =X km
So P to R = x/5 Km
According to question
{X/(16+4) }+ {(x/5)/(16-4)}=7.5
X=50 km.

2.C-4 hrs 40 min)
DN speed = 24 km/hr
UP speed=18 km/hr
According to question
Reqd time=48/24 + 48/18=4 hrs 40 min

3.B-100 )
Let the distance between Q & R be X km & the distance P & Q be (x+6) km
According to question
(x/20) – (x+6)/24= 32/60
X=94 km
Distance between P & Q = (94+6)= 100 km

4.B-180 km)
Let the total distance be X km
According to question
X/(14+4) + (X/2)/(14-4)=19
X=180 km

5.A-231 km)
Let the distance be X km
According to question
X/(16-5) –X/(16+5) =10
X= 231 km
