    " Suppose the airport is at a point called O. |(Also suppose the this is not anywhere near the North or South Poles.) After 3 hours: The first plane is 505 mph x 3 hours = 1515 miles North of O. The second plane is 565 mph x 3 hours = 1695 miles South of O. Therefore, the total distance between them is 1515 miles + 1685 miles = 3210 miles Which means they are 3200 miles apart after 3 hours.
