Expert Answer:

Let the speed of the stream be x km/hr
The boat goes 30 km upstream and 44 km downsream.
Thus, speed of stream is 3 km.
the speed of a boat in still water is 8 km/hr. it can go 30 kmupstream and 44 km downstream in 10 hour. find the speed of thestream.
Answer: -
Let the speed of the stream be y km/hr.
Speed of boat = 8 km/hr
According to the given information, we have:
30/8-y + 44/8+y = 10
Now, solve this equation to get the answer.
