'An Average Average Speed' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/
I drove from Cambridge to Cardiff at an average speed of 50 mph, it
was heavy traffic, but I managed to drive back at an
average speed of 70 mph. Why wasn't my average speed for the round
trip 60mph ?
What average speed for the return journey would make the round trip
average 60 mph ?
