Answer:2688.63 milesStep-by-step explanation:Given

Distance between Paris and Los-Angeles

wind blows from Los Angeles to Paris with 100 mph

Velocity of Plane in still Air is

Relative velocity of A is because Plane A is flying opposite to wind

Relative velocity of B is

Plane A leaves At 12 noon

distance traveled by Plane A in 1 hr

Net distance between two Planes is

Suppose they meet after t hr

Distance traveled by Plane B in t time

distance traveled by Plane A in t hr is

Total distance is 4550 miles

Distance traveled by B is

i.e. they meet at a distance of 2688.63 miles from Los Angeles
