Question 284442: A plane flies 600 miles per hour with the wind and 530 miles per hour against the wind. Find the speed of the wind and the speed of the plane in still air. Answer by Alan3354(30968) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! The "speed of the plane in still air" is called the airspeed.
It's the average of the 2 groundspeeds.
= (600 + 530)/2
= 565 mph
The wind speed is the difference:
600 - 565 = 35 mph
