given : 1) at t =1 hr. , average speed = 65 kmph 2) at t = 2hr. , average speed = 58 kmph so we know that: \[\large{\frac{\textbf{total distance travelled}}{\textbf{total time taken}}=\textbf{average speed}}\]

also remember that \[\huge \frac{\text{speed}_1 + \text{speed}_2}{2} \ne \text{average speed}\] just saying

FIrst, find how far they drove. Use speed*time= distance they drove 65km/hr for the first hour: distance= 65*1 do the same thing for the 2nd hour (using the new speed), and the 3rd hour add up the distances now use speed*time= distance speed= distance/time distance will be the total distance time will be the total time ( 3 hours)
