Question description

Mike likes to canoe. he can paddle 4 miles per hour. he is planning a river trip that will take him to a destination 6 miles upstream (that is, against the current). the speed of the current will work against the speed that he can paddle.

1. What values if x make sense in the context of the problem?(state the domain)

2. If he travels back downstream as well, and passes at the same rate, how fast is the current moving if the trip takes him total of three hours?
