**Reiny**, Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 8:40amtime for 1st flight = 4800/x

time for return flight = 4800/(x-200)

4800/(x-200) - 4800/x = 2

multiply by x(x-200)

4800x - 4800(x-200) = 2x(x-200)

960000 = 2x^2 - 400x

x^2 - 200x - 480000=0

(x - 800)(x + 600) = 0

x = 800 or x = -600 , the negative speed makes no sense

so x = 800 km/h

check:

1st flight = 4800/800 = 6 hrs

2nd flight = 4800/600 = 8 hrs

difference is 2 hours, YEahh!
