     Two towns A and B are beside a river. 

     The speed of the current is 2 km/hour. 

     It takes 5 hours for a boat to travel between A and B for a round trip. 

     The speed is 10 km/hour in still water. 

     Find the distance between Town A and Town B?

     x/12 + x/8 = 5

     2x + 3x = 120

     x = 24

     The distance between Town A and Town B is 24 km.

    d/12 + d/8= 5

    (12d + 8d)/96= 5

    d= 24 km
