2.) distance = time × speed
Let rowing speed in still water be x, current in river be y
Downstream, speed is his natural rowing speed plus the current:
24 = 6(x + y)
Upstream, speed is natural rowing speed minus current:
18 = 6(x  y)
or
4 = x + y
3 = x  y
Add
7 = 2 x
x = 7/2 km/h (and current is 1/2 km/h)
He can row at 3.5 km/h
