Average speed

The car drove from city A to city B at a 40 km/h and back to city A at a speed of 80 km/h. What was the average speed of the car?

Correct answer:

v =  53.3333 km/h

Step-by-step explanation:

v1=40 km/h v2=80 km/h  v=s/t v=s/v1+s/v22 s  v=1/v1+1/v22=1/40+1/802=3160 km/h=53.3333 km/h
