(a) How long will they take to go a distance of 10 km?
Ans. These log boats take one hour to travel 4 km,
Then, a log boat takes two hours to travel = 2 × 4 = 8 km
But in half an hour, the log boat will travel = 4/2 = 2km

For 2 hours boat travel = 8 km
For 1/2 an hour, boat travel = 2 km
∴ the total time they take to go a distance of 10 km = is 2 and a half an hour.

Q.2. Look at the different types of boats.
Some boats have motors and go further into the sea. Since they go far out, they can catch more fish. These boats travel faster, at the speed of about 20 km in one hour.

(a) How far would the motor boats go in three and a half hours?
Ans. As mentioned in the question, these motor boats travel at the speed of about 20 km in one hour = 20 x 1
Then the distance traveled by motor boats in three and half hours (3.5)
= 20 × 3.5
= 70 km

(b) How much time will they take to go 85 km?
Ans. As mentioned in the question, these motor boats travel at the speed of about 20 km in one hour.
Then the distance traveled by motor boats in four hours
= 20 × 4
= 80 km

This gives 5 as the remainder
The distance traveled by motor boats in 1/4 hour = 1/4 × 20
= 5 km
The total time is taken by motor boat to go a distance of 85 km
= Distance/ Speed
= 85/20
= 4 hours 15 minutes.
