    \[\frac{ 1pool }{ 9 hours }*T hours + \frac{ 1pool }{ 12 hours}*Thours = 1 pool\] t/9 + t/12 =1

    it will be easier for you if you leave 108 as 9*12 , but do it however you like...

    A plane traveling from Dallas to New York with a tailwind of 30 miles per hour takes 4.5 hours. Returning with the headwind, it takes the same plane 5 hours. What is the average speed of the plane in calm conditions? A plane traveling from Dallas to New York with a tailwind of 30 miles per hour takes 4.5 hours.
