Boats and streams formulas
Short tricks with formula for boats and streams is given as you expected,
Downstream / Upstream :
Direction along the stream is called Downstream.
Direction against the stream is called upstream.
If the speed in the still water is x km / hr and the speed of the stream is y km / hr then,
speed downstream = (x + y) km / hr.
speed upstream = (x – y) km / hr.
If the speed downstream is u km / hr and the speed upstream is v km / hr then,
speed in still water = (1 / 2) (a + b) km / hr.
Rate of stream = (1 / 2) (a – b) km / hr.
