  1. 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
