Homework Help: Math

Posted by amy on Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 12:47am.

This is also another problem that I'm having trouble on.

A motorboat can maintain a constant speed of 16 miles per hour relative to the water. The boat makes a trip upstream to a certain point in 20 minutes; the return trip takes 15 minutes. What is the speed of the current?

Also what would be the equation?

For this motion problem I only learned how to solve this with the distance and velocity given.

What would be the velocity? v-16 and v+16 ?

Please help! Thank you.
