**Dallas**, Friday, March 4, 2011 at 1:28am2.) 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
