A plane traveled 580 miles to Anakara and back. The trip there was with the wind. It took 5 hours. The trip back was into the wind. The trip back took 10 hours. Find the speed of the plane in still air and the speed of the wind.

  • Algebra - ,

    If the speed in still air is s, and the wind speed is w,

    580/(s+w) = 5
    580/(s-w) = 10

    s=87
    w=29
