Finding the time to the ETP

Hi,

I'm working from the rpl/ppl study guide volume 2, last revised April 2018. I'm just wondering if there are some errors on page 220 or am i doing something wrong?

Question 2
95nm @ 140kts GS = 41 mins
But the GS on page 219 indicates that it's actually 98kts from point A to point B.
Shouldn't the equation therefore be 95nm @ 98kts = 58 mins?

It also seems like the answers for Questions 3, 4 and 5 are incorrect too.

Thanks,
Jason

I see what your doing the question number relates to the Diagram above it not below, the answers are correct as far as I can see

I'll try and make that more clear in the book
