# The speed of a boat in still water is 8km/hr. If the boat covers a distance of 16.5 km upstream in three hours,find the speed of the current.

Speed of boat upstream=$\frac{distance}{time}=\frac{16.5km}{3hours}=5.5km/hr$
But,
Speed of boat upstream=speed of boat in still water-speed of the current
$\therefore$ speed of current
=speed of boat in still water-speed of boat upstream
=8km/hr-5.5km/hr=2.5km/hr
