| **The speed of the boat along the river is 10 km / h, and against the current 6 km / h. Find your own boat speed. Find the speed of the river.**

Decision:

x – own boat speed

y is the speed of the river

1) Let’s compose a system of equations:

x + y = 10

x-y = 6

2x = 16

x = 16/2

x = 8

8km / h – boat’s own speed

2) Find the speed of the river:

8 + y = 10

y = 10-8

y = 2

2km / h – river speed

Answer: 2 km / h
