    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1072miles/4hours = 268 miles/hour tailwind

    848miles/4hours = 212 miles/hour headwind

    still air = tailwind-headwind speed = 268-212 = 56

    still air speed = 56 miles/hour

    speed of tailwind = still air + wind speed -> wind speed = tailwind – still air = 268-56 = 212 mi/hr
