The cyclist

The cyclist drove from A to B, 60 km away. The first half drove at 30km/h, the second at 20km/h. How long did it take for him?

Correct answer:

t =  2.5 h

Step-by-step explanation:

s=60 km v1=30 km/h v2=20 km/h  s1=s/2=60/2=30 km  t1=s1/v1=30/30=1 h t2=s1/v2=30/20=32=1.5 h  t=t1+t2=1+1.5=52=52 h=2.5 h
