A plane is traveling between City A and City B, which are 2000 miles apart. City A is due north of City B, and there is a strong, constant wind blowing due south. At constant speed, it takes a plane 5 hours to go from A to B with the wind at its tail, but 8 hours to go back when facing this headwind. What is the speed of the wind?

A -> B = 5hrs
B -> A = 8hrs

With no wind, time each way should be equal.

Speed of plane = 2000/6.5 = 307.6 mph

Speed (A->B) = 2000/5 = 400mph

Speed of wind = 92.4mph
