A JET FLIES WITH THE WIND AT 1100km/hr and 750 km/hr against the same wind.
Find the rate of the wind and speed of the plane

PLEASE INCLUDE THE EQUATION OR SET FOR SOLUTION

  • ALGEBRA 1 -

    Eq1: Vp + Vw = 1100.
    Eq2: Vp - Vw = 750.
    Add the Eqs:
    2Vp = 1850
    Vp = 925 km/h = Velocity of the plane.

    In Eq1, substitute 925 for Vp:
    925 + Vw = 1100
    Vw = 1100 - 925 = 175 km/h = Velocity of the wind.
