    System-of-Equations Word Problem..

    A certain river has a speed of 2.48 km/h. A rower travels downstream for 2.5 h and returns in 4.5 h. Find his rate in still water, and find the one-way distance traveled. Round the answers to three significant digits.

    I am really struggling with this, I mean I have tried to get this with a group of other kids and no one can get it!

    Any help is greatly appreciated !

    y=(x+2.48)2.5
    and
    y=(x-2.48)4.5
