 Question 761466: It takes a rowing crew 1 hour and 30 minutes longer to go 12 miles up a river than to return. Find the speed of the rowing crew in still water if the speed of the current is 2 mph. I set the problem up ( s= speed and t= time) Going up river: 12= (s+ 2)t I then know that t= 12/(s+2) Going down river: 12= (s-2)(t+1.5) So making the substitution for t: Going down river 12=(s-2)((12/(s+2)) + 1.5) But this is where I run into problems. How do I solve this algebra problem? Thanks Click here to see answer by DrBeeee(684)
