1.
longer piece  x
shorter piece (2/3)x
x+ 2x/3 = 40
3x + 2x = 120
5x=120
x=24
long piece is 24 , short piece is 16
2. speed of plane in still air  x mph
speed of wind  y mph
9(xy) = 540 > xy = 60
6(x+y) = 540 > x+y = 90
add them:
2x = 150
x = 75
speed of plane: 75 mph
speed of wind : 15 mphposted by Reiny
