2. Answer:

Let the distance covered by the boat each way be d km. And let the velocity of the stream be v km/hr.

While going downstream the velocity of the boat is (v+4) km/hr.

While going upstream the velocity of the boat is (v-4) km/hr.

d/(v+4) = 3, or

d = 3v +12 …(1)

d/(v-4) = 9, or

d = 9v – 36 …(2).

Equating (1) and (2)

d = 3v +12 = 9v – 36, or

9v-3v = 6v = 12+36 = 48, or

v = 48/6 = 8 km/hr

The velocity of the stream is 8 km/hr. The distance covered, d = 36 km.

Check: While going downstream time taken = 36/(4+8) = 3 hours. Correct.

While going upstream time taken = 36/(8–4) = 9 hours. Correct.
