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.
