Jakerrr

I've tried this for about an Hour and can't seem to find the answer. ----------------------- You have a 30 Minuite commute into work. Since you leave EARLY, the trip going to work is EASIER than the trip home. You can travel to work in the SAME TIME that it takes for you to make it 24 MILES on the trip back home. Your AVERAGE speed coming home is 5 MILES PER HOUR SLOWER than your AVERAGE speed goign to work. What is your AVERAGE SPEED going to work?

    not quite. "Your AVERAGE speed coming home is 5 MILES PER HOUR SLOWER than your AVERAGE speed going to work." so, if your average speed coming home is 48...

    almost...your speed coming home is slower. your speed GOING to work should be faster.
