I am flying a plane capable of an airspeed of 100 km/hr.
If the wind velocity was 45 km/h [95], in what direction would I have to fly in order to follow the track to my destination. And how long would this trip take? The distance between my starting point and my destination is 137.25 km.

unless you give the destination's direction, there's no way to answer that. If it's 137.25 [95], then just add airspeed + windspeed and divide
If it's 137.25 [275] the subtract wind speed from airspeed.
etc.
