Solution

Let, Speed of stream = x km/hour. When going downstream, effective speed = (15+x) km/hour When going upstream, effective speed = (15-x) km/hour Distance covered in going downstream = 30km Distance covered in going upstream = 30km Total time of going downstream and upstream = 4.5 hour So ---- [30/(15+x)]+[30/(15-x)] = 4.5 Solving this, we get x = 5 km/hour

Rate upstream = (750/675) = 10/9 m/sec Rate downstream (750/450) m/sec = 5/3 m/sec Rate in still water = (1/2)*[(10/9) + (5/3)] m/sec. = 25/18 m/sec = (25/18)*(18/5) kmph = 5 kmph

let time t1 be x, so when train is 15 mintutes late new time t2=x+15/60 as distance is same, 60*x=50*(x+15/60) x=2.5hr distance=60*2.5=150km
