Solve the problem. A boat can go 33 mph in still water. It takes as long to go 300 miles upstream as it does to go downstream 360 miles. How fast is the current?

  • math help please -

    Downstream velocity is vb+vs
    Upstream velocity is Vb-Vs

    You are given Vb.

    upstream: 300=(vb-vs)T
    add the equations...
    660=2vbT solve for time. Then, go back to either equation and solve for vstream.
