If the speed was the same for each portion, what was the flying time for the second part of the trip?Answer by checkley75(3666)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!560/(X+1)=480/X NOW CROSS MULTIPLY 560X=480X+480 560X-480X=480 80X=480 X=480/80 X=6 HOUR IS THE FLYING TIME FOR THE 480 MPH PLANE. 480/6=80 MPH.
