A small boat can travel at 28 miles per hour How many hours will it take to go across the bay that is 56 miles wide?

2 hours

Remember that time = distance/rate

The distance you need to cover is 56 miles, while you go 28 miles per hour. Using these, we get this:

time=56/28
time=2

So it will take two hours to go across a 56 mile wide bay at 28 mph.

What should you do if your craft capsizes in a stream?

Make sure you wear a life jacket coz that water's gonna be really deep!

===================================================

Boats are designed to float. If possible, get back in the boat and attempt to bail it out.

Otherwise, hang on to the boat, rather than risk trying to swim to shore.

Attempt to move the boat to shore. If you stay with the boat, and the boat gets to shore, you'll be safe.

If you stay with the boat, even if you can't bring the boat to shore, you have a much greater chance of being rescued than you'd have trying to reach shore on your own.

If there are rapids, exposed rocks or rocks just below the surface:

  • Float on your back with your feet facing downstreet to minimize injury from striking rocks.
  • Stay away from the banks if there is non-trivial vegatation in and around the water surface outward from the bank. You can get trapped if the current is strong enough.

Air Travel

Where do people usually arrive when they travel to Britain by sea or air?

There is no single answer to that. Britain has many airports, so it depends on where people are travelling to exactly, as to which airport they will fly to, and also where they are coming from. London Heathrow would be the biggest airport, but there are many other airports that people fly direct to. People will get to the nearest airport to their final destination.

It is the same with the sea ports. There are many of them that people can travel to and there are many places that they would be travelling from, so there would be different options depending on those factors.
