Best answer

Speed of the jet airplane, vjet = 500 km/h

Relative speed of its products of combustion with respect to the plane, 

vsmoke = – 1500 km/h

Speed of its products of combustion with respect to the ground = v′smoke Relative speed of its products of combustion with respect to the airplane,

vsmoke = v′smoke – vjet 

1500 = v′smoke – 500 

v′smoke = – 1000 km/h

The negative sign indicates that the direction of its products of combustion is opposite to the direction of motion of the jet airplane.
