With a tailwind, a bird flew at a ground speed of 3 mi/hr. Flying the same path against the same wind, the bird travels at a ground speed of 1.5 mi/hr. What is the bird's air speed? What is the wind speed?

  • algebra -

    W= wind speed
    B= bird speed

    B+W=3
    B-W=1.5

    add the equation
    2B=4.5 Solve for B, then solve for W
