Question

mathrm{Sol. } ~ ( 3 ) ~ L e t ~ s p e e d ~ o f ~ p e r s o n ~ i n ~ s t i l l ~ w a t e r ~ ( =x ) kmph and speed of current ( =y ) kmph Now, According to the question,
( therefore x+y=frac{15}{3}=5 mathrm{kmph} )
(i)
( x-y=frac{15}{frac{15}{2}}=2 mathrm{kmph} )
(ii)
On adding eq (i) & (ii),
( 2 x=7 Rightarrow x=frac{7}{2}=3.5 mathrm{kmph} )
