A jet travels at a rate of 798 mi/hr. with the wind. Going against the wind, the jet travels at a rate of 762 mi/hr. What is the rate of the jet in still air and the the rate of the wind?
please show how the equation should be set up

algebra 
Henry,
Vp + Vw = 798
Vp  Vw = 762
Solve using the elimination method.
Vp = Velocity of plane in still air.
Vw = Velocity of the wind.
