Answer:The plane travelled for at an average of speed and at an average speed of .

Step-by-step explanation:Let denote the number of hours that the plane travelled at an average speed of .

Given that the trip is long in total, the plane would have travelled at an average speed of for .

The plane would have travelled miles after at an average speed of . Likewise, the plane would have travelled after at an average of .

The plane has travelled in total. In other words:

.

Solve this equation for : .

In other words, the plane has travelled for at an average of speed . It would have travelled for for the other part of the trip (at an average speed of .)
