let the man rows a distance of d meters
let velocity of man is v in still water
let velocity of river is V
now time taken by man to row in still water is t, which is equal to
t=d/v {eq 1}
now time taken by man to row the same distance while going downstream is T, which is equal to
T=d/(v+V) {eq 2}  {velocity of man and river adds while going downstream}
divide numerator and denominator in eq 2 by v
1+(V/v) = t/T
v/V = T/(t-T)
pls tell is this ansewr helpful..

							let speed of man be V
and speed of river flow U.

thanV=\frac{d}{t }



dividing both equations and rearranging

Sorry, mohit and abhinav but the answer is( t2+T2)/(t2-T2). So the process suggested is not helpful. I hope after knowing the answer maybe you can suggest me the correct process.....
