## Question

**A man can row 6 kmph in still water. When the river is running at 1.2 kmph, it takes him 1 hour to row to a place and back. What is the total distance traveled by the man ?**

A. 5.76 kms

B. 5.24 kms

C. 4.58 kms

D. 6.35 kms

#### Answer: A. 5.76 kms

**Solution:**

Speed in still water = 6 kmph

Stream speed = 1.2 kmph

Down stream = 7.2 kmph

Up Stream = 4.8 kmph

x/7.2 + x/4.8 = 1

x = 2.88

**Total Distance = 2.88 x 2 = 5.76 kms**

**Hence, The Total distance is 5.76 kms.**
