Greetings, I believe this is possibly the correct place to put this, I am sorry if I am wrong.
I was wondering if I could get help on a couple of problems that have pestered me.
There are two, but I think if I can get the first one the second should be a breeze.
Question: A pilot can travel 400 miles with the wind in the same amount of time as 336 miles against the wind. Find the speed of the wind if the pilot's speed in still air is 230 miles per hour.
So here is how I set it up with the quation D=RT.
D R T
Quite honestly, I am very bad at word problems like this; I am hoping I can get a step in the right direction, if at all possible. I know that to find Rate, it would be R=D/T, however I don't know that one is going faster or slower, so I would probably set it up as
400/x=336/x, which doesn't make sense.
