    figure 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

    time 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
