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=12=0.5 h  v2=60 km/h t2=3/4=34=0.75 h  s1=v1 t1=80 0.5=40 km s2=v2 t2=60 0.75=45 km  v=s1+s2t1+t2=40+450.5+0.75=68 km/h
