 Question 450568: Could you please help me on how to solve this problem; I tried to figure out the answer but it do not look right. "John found his plane could fly at 6 times the speed of the wind. He flew 700 miles upwind in 3 hours more than it took to fly 560 miles downwind. What was the speed of the plan in still air?" My answer: (a). (A + W)T_D = D_D (b). (A – W)T_U = D_U (6W + W)(T_U + 3) = 560 → (6W + W)T_U = 700 7WT_U + 3W = 560 → 7WT_U = 700 → WT_U = 100 7(100) + 3W = 560 → Click here to see answer by rwm(914)
