A jet can travel 1000 miles against the wind in 2.5 hours. Going with the wind, the jet could travel 1250 miles in the same amount of time.

Find the speed of the jet in still air and speed of the wind

Step 1

Let *R* be speed of the jet in still air and *W* be a speed of the wind.

Here, *R+W* is speed of jet with the wind and *R-W* is speed of jet against the wind.

The speed of the jet against the wind is computed as follows.

Step 2

Obtain the speed of the jet &nbs...
