So, their actual speed is the "air speed" minus the current:
s = 3-v
And the time it will take them to make the trip is the distance divided by their speed:
t = 200/s
t= 200/(3-v)

and write and solve an equation to find the current spees if the school make its trip in 8 hours.

For that, just take the final equation and solve it for v:
t = 200/(3-v)
3 - v = 200/t
v = 3 - 200/t
and plug in 8 for t:
v = 3 - 200/8 = -22
(the negative number just means that the current is working in their favor)
