I think the answer is 2 mph in still water and 3mph in the current
a girl rows a boat 6 miles upstream in 3 hours. she returns 6 miles downstream in 2 hours. how fast does she go each way?
Upstream speed is:
6 miles
--------
3 hours
Dividing numerator and denominator by 3:
2 miles
--------
1 hour
That's 2 mi/hr.
Downstream speed is:
6 miles
--------
2 hours
Dividing numerator and denominator by 2:
3 miles
--------
1 hour
That's 3 mi/hr.
