Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Let x represent the speed of the wind

510mph -x = 410mph + x |speeds equal taking the wind out of play
100 = 2x
x = 50mph
Speed of plane in still air = 460mph (410mph + 50mph)


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
