A man flies a small airplane from Fargo to Bismarck, North Dakota

A man flies a small airplane from Fargo to Bismarck, North Dakota --- a distance of 180 miles. Because he is flying into a head wind, the trip takes him 2 hours. On the way back, the wind is still blowing at the same speed, so the return trip takes only 1 hour and 30 minutes. What is the plane's speed in still air, and how fast is the wind blowing?

his plane speed equals mph.
the wind speed equals mph.
