a boat moves through still wather at x kilometers(km) per hour. it travels 24km up stream against a current of 2km per hour and then returns with the current. The rate upstream is x-2 because the boat moves against the current and the rate downstream is x+2 because the boat moves with the current.

36.write an expression for the total time for the round trip.
