two kids paddled 6 miles up stream for 4 hours. the return trip took 3 hours. what is the rate they where traveling? i need help now!!!

Use the formula d=r*t the distance is 6 miles the rate is not decided and the 3hours is the time. plug those numbers in. that makes it 6=3r divide both sides by 3 to get the variable alone. did that help?

yes thanks
