If you bike for 3 hours at 10 mph and then walk for 1 hour at 2 mph, what would be your average speed?

Average Speed =Distance covered / Time

 

3 hours x 10 mph =30 miles

1 hour x 2 mph =2 miles

30 + 2 =32 miles - total distance covered.

3 hours + 1 hour = 4 hours - total time

Average speed =32 miles / 4 hours =8 mph.
