Average speed

The car drove on one section of the highway for half an hour at a speed of 80 km/h. Then he reduced his speed to 60km/h. It went three-quarters of an hour at a speed of 60 km/h. What was the average speed of the car?

Correct answer:

v =  68 km/h

Step-by-step explanation:

v1=80 km/h t1=1/2=21=0.5 h  v2=60 km/h t2=3/4=43=0.75 h  s1=v1 t1=v1 21=80 0.5=40 km s2=v2 t2=v2 43=60 0.75=45 km  v=t1+t2s1+s2=21+43s1+s2=0.5+0.7540+45=68 km/h
