    Step 4: Select the number of hours that your friend or family member made the same trip with the current (this should be a smaller number, as your friend or family member will be traveling with the current). Step 5: Write out the word problem you created and calculate how fast your friend or family member was traveling in still water. Round your answer to the nearest mph.

    no these are what it says to me : For distance problems: Draw a diagram if you are not given one. Diagrams help you to visualize what is going on in the problem. Since these problems involve distance, you will use the formula d = rt, where d stands for distance, r stands for the rate, and t stands for time. For current and wind problems, remember that going against the current or wind slows down the rate, while going with the current or wind increases the rate. Dissect each piece of information carefully regarding the scenario and draw a table if needed.
