1.6T -55 if v>=45

For T=30 degrees F, what wind speed corresponds to a windchill temp. of 0 degrees F?

I assume in this problem that I would set the second equation (beginning with 91.4 +(91.4-T), to 0 and solve for v, but that approaches isn't working very well so far. Am I wrong in my approach to the solution?
