Basic Maths Mcqs

Q.  A person can row at 9 kmph and still water. He takes 4 1/2 hours to row from A to B and back. What is the distance between A and B if the speed of the stream is 1 kmph?

a. 32 km
b. 25 km
c. 28 km
d. 24 km
e. None of these


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Let the distance between A and B be x km.

Total time = x/(9 + 1) + x/(9 – 1) = 4.5
=> x/10 + x/8 = 9/2 => (4x + 5x)/40 = 9/2 => x = 20 km.
