According to the formula Average speed =(Total Distance travel/Total time taken)

ReplyDeleteif A is the distance-then total distance travel in to and fro is 2A

Time taken while going is A/20

Time taken while cmg is A/X ( X is the speed )

Average speed = 2A/((A/20)+(A/X)) =40

Solving this , we get AX= AX+20

Conclusion: It is quite impossible to get average speed of 40MPH in this case

Not possible as in the onward journey you consume the total time required to make the average as 40 kmph
