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 -

    Vp + Vw = 798
    Vp - Vw = 762
    Solve using the elimination method.

    Vp = Velocity of plane in still air.
    Vw = Velocity of the wind.
