2. ### Adriana's 18-kilometer boat trip downriver took two hours, but the return trip back upstream took three hours?

...3 hr 18/(b-c) = 3 18 = 3b - 3c 2b + 2c = 3b - 3c 5c = b by substitution 18 = 2c + 2(5c) 18 = 12c c = 1.5 km/hr b = 5(1.5) = 7.5 km/hr Speed of boat in still water: 7.5 km/hr current: 1.5 km/hr

3. ### A boat traveling at a constant speed takes 2 hours to travel 24 miles downstream, and 3 hours to travel?

b = speed of boat c = speed of river current distance / time = speed 24 miles / 2 hours = b + c 12 mph = b + c [1] 18 miles / 3 hours = b - c 6 mph = b - c [2] [1] - [2]: 6 mph = 2c c = 3 mph
