(b) Distance = Velocityx Time

Total distance travelled = (90 km/h)(40/60 h) + (80 km/h)(19/60 h) + (50 km/h)(40/60 h)

= 356/3 km

Total distance travelled = 118.67 km

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(a) Average speed of trip = Total distance travelled / Total time taken

= (118.67 km)/(40/60 +19/60 +40/60 +25/60)

   = 118.67/2.066

   Average speed of trip = 57.42 km/h
