Re: problem on streams

Hi;

Let s = the speed of the boat in still water.

s = 15 km/hr


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
