**Physics**

The compass in a plane indicates that the plane is heading due east, with an airspeed of 250 km/h (Vpa). A steady wind is blowing with a magnitude of 75km/h, which increases the velocity of the plane, relative to the ground. If the plane is going along a direction East 12 ...

When a plane flies into the wind, it can travel 3000mi in 6 hr. When it flies with the wind, it can travel the same distance in 5 hr. Find the rate of the plane in still air and the rate of the wind.

**Algebra**

A Coast Guard plane has enough fuel to fly for 6hr, and it's speed in still air is 240 mph. The plane departs with 40 mph tailwind and returns to the same airport flying into the wind. How far can the plane travel under these conditions?
