Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How long before it encounters the headwind? Is it asking how long it takes to travel 900 mi? or just in the time it encounters the headwind?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anyhow, distance = rate * t, against the wind the rate should be 55050 distance of 900 solve for "t"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0distance=rate*t as said above.. 900=500*t divide 900 by 500, and you get 1.8. 1.8=108 minutes since its mph.
