a small plane flying with the wind travels 375 miles in 3 hours. on the return trip, flying against the wind, the same plane takes 5 hours to travel 375 miles. find the rate of the plane in still air and the rate of the wind

Let the plane's speed be x

Speed with the air = 375/3=125 miles per hour

Speed against the air = 375/5 =75 miles per hour

Plane's speed = (125+75)/2= 100 miles per hour

Wind's speed = 25 miles per hour
