5*190 = 950 miles

The plane will fly 480 miles.

A private plane leaves an airport and flies due east at 192 miles per hour. Two hours later, a jet leaves the same airport and flies due east at 960 miles per hour. How far will the private plane fly before it is passed by the jet?

A plane will travel 840 miles if it flies at 210mph for 4 hours.

If it flies at 350 miles per hour, then in three hours it will fly 350*3 or 1050 miles.

A private plane leaves an airport and flies due east at 192 miles per hour. Two hours later, a jet leaves the same airport and flies due east at 960 miles per hour. How far will the private plane fly before it is passed by the jet?

If the question is asking, "How far will the private plane fly before the jet overtakes it ?" Both planes will have flown the same distance. Distance = Time (T) x Velocity. Therefore 192 x T = 960(T - 2) = 960T - 1920 768T = 1920 : T = 2.5 In 2.5 hours the private plane flies 192 x 2.5 = 480 miles. (The jet plane in 0.5 hours flies 960 x 1/2 = 480 miles)

The plane's airspeed is the sum of its speed relative to the air and the speed of the jet stream. To calculate the plane's airspeed when traveling with the jet stream, we can subtract the jet stream speed from 1150 miles divided by 5 hours. This gives an airspeed of 230 miles per hour.

The plane was in the air for 4.5 hours (1,350 miles divided by 300 miles per hour).

480 miles per hour * 175 hours = 84,000 miles
