**Steve**, Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 4:40pmthe distances are hew same, though unknown.

let the distance be d. time = distance/speed. Add up the times:

d/4.5 + d/5.5 = .8

10d = 19.8

d = 1.98km

d/4.5 = .44hour

d/5.5 = .36hour

total = .80 hour = 48 min.

**TutorCat**, Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 4:41pmDistance= rate*time

Distance upstream = distance downstream

Time should be converted to hour b/c the units for rate is in /hour. We know the total time so assign one of the times x (upstream time b/c you would only have to solve for x to get its time) and the other the total time in hour-x.
