    How 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?

    anyhow, distance = rate * t, against the wind the rate should be 550-50 distance of 900 solve for "t"

    distance=rate*t as said above.. 900=500*t divide 900 by 500, and you get 1.8. 1.8=108 minutes since its mph.

    1= 60 min you can calculate what 0.8 is and add the two together. :)
