# How many kilometers the motor ship will pass in 5 hours moving along the river

**How many kilometers the motor ship will pass in 5 hours moving along the river if the current speed is 2500 m in 1 hour and this is 5/48 of the motor ship’s own speed.**

Let us find the value of the own speed of this motor ship, for this we need to divide the value of the river flow speed by the specified fraction:

2500: 5/48 = 24000 m / h – this is the value of the own speed of this motor ship;

Let’s find the value of the speed along the river flow of the given motor ship, for this we need the value of the own speed of the given motor ship, add the value of the speed of the river flow:

24000 + 2500 = 26500 km / h – this is the value of the speed along the river flow of this motor ship;

Let us find the distance that the given motor ship will cover in the specified time, for this we need the speed value along the river flow of the given motor ship multiplied by the specified time:

26500 * 5 = 132500 m / h – this is the distance this motor ship will cover in 5 hours.

Answer: 132500 m / h – this is the distance this motor ship will cover in 5 hours.
