i worked this problem already but my teacher said im wrong.

A turbo-jet flies 50 mph faster than a super-prop plane. If a turbo-jet goes 2000 mi in 3 hr less time than it takes the super-prop to go 2800 mi, find the speed of each plane.

The last equation should be
 
(2800 / p) + 3 = 2000 / (p + 50)
