Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1figure out how long it took to get there, then figure out how long it took to get back that is the total time divide the total distance (200 miles ) by the total time to get the average speed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1time going it \(\frac{100}{60}\) time returning is \(\frac{100}{40}\) total time is \[\frac{100}{60}+\frac{100}{40}=\frac{25}{6}\] and \[200\div \frac{25}{6}=200\times \frac{6}{25}=8\times 6=48\] as luisz said
