Q. 101

# <span lang="EN-GB

Let the steamer speed be x

Downstream speed = (x + 3)

Distance between the points = 3(x + 3)(i)

Upstream speed = (x-3)

Distance between the points = 5(x-3)(ii)

Equate (i) and (ii)

3(x + 3) = 5(x-3)

3x + 9 = 5x-15

-2x = -6

(divide by -2 on both the sides)

x = 3
