    Please label it so a teacher of that subject will read your post. I only opened it out of curiosity. Look to the left, upper-left hand side of the red menu for a School Subject that we can recognize.


  • algebra -

    plane's normal speed = s
    wind speed = w

    1080(s+w) = 6
    360/(s-w) = 3

    6s + 6w = 1080
    3s - 3w = 360

    12s = 1800
    s = 150
    w = 30
