A man flies a small airplane from Fargo to Bismarck, North Dakota --- a distance of 180 miles. Because he is flying into a head wind, the trip takes him 2 hours. On the way back, the wind is still blowing at the same speed, so the return trip takes only 1 hour 12 minutes. What is his speed in still air, and how fast is the wind blowing?

rate times time equals distance
(n-w)2=180 (n+w)1.2=180 --------------- 2n-2w=180 1.2n+1.2w=180 ----------------- 6n-6w=540 6n+6w=900 ---------------- 12n=1440 n=123 -------------- substitute n into one of original equations 2(123)-2w=180 w=33 did i do that right?
