An airplane flying into a headwind travels 2600 miles in 6 hours and 15 minutes. On the return flight, the same distance is traveled in 4 hours. Find the speed of the plane in still air and the speed of the wind, assuming that both remain constant throughout the round trip

2600/(6.25) = 416 m/hr

2600/4        =  650 m/hr   

 

(416 + 650)/2 = 533 m/hr   speed in still air

 

533-416 =  wind speed = 117 m/hr
