1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Monarch butterflies can sustain air speeds of 4.4 m/s while migrating. A certain monarch wants to fly to a location due west 4.7 km away. A steady 2.4 m/s breeze is blowing from the east to the west. How long will it take the monarch to make the trip to the location to the west?

If all conditions stay the same, how long would it take the monarch to make the return trip?

What is the total round trip flying time for the monarch? That is, how long would it take the butterfly to go to the west location, turn around, and come back?

What would the total round trip time be, if no wind was blowing?
