Yesterday it took a certain plane 3 hrs. to fly from City A to City B at an average of 400 mph. Today the same plane flew from City A to City B at an average speed of 450 mph. How many more yesterday than it took today?*I didn't understand this part*

i think it is pretty straight though the last part of the question is unclear/

= 3 hours - 1200/450
= 20 minuets.

The distance between A and B = 400*3 = 1200 miles

Time taken today = 1200/450 = 8/3 hours

So it took 3-8/3 = 1/3 hour more = 1/3* 60 = 20 mins more yesterday
