Homework Help: 8th Grade Math (Algebra1)

Posted by Nicole C. on Tuesday, February 3, 2009 at 9:21pm.

I actually have a few different problems that are giving me trouble.
The first:
We have to use the motion problem formula: d=rt and make a table containing the elements:
rate: * time: = distance
------------------------------
label #1
label #2

The Directions for this problem's section:
Make a table, and use systems of equations to solve these word problems.

Problem:

Flying with the wind, a plane travels 1200 nautical miles in 4 hours. Flying against the wind, it travels 500 nautical miles in 2 hours. What is the speed of the plane in still air and the speed of the wind?

***I have figured out that on the table label #1 will be "With the wind" and label #2 will be "Against the wind"***

Thank you so much for any help that I can get!!!
