Aaron will jog from home at x miles per hour and then walk back at y miles an hour on the same route. how many miles from home can Aaron jog so that he spends a total of t hours jogging and walking?

a. $$xt/y$$

b. $$(x+t)/xy$$

c. $$xyt/(x+y)$$

d. $$(x+y+t)/xy$$

e. $$[(y+t)/x] - [t/y]$$

average speed will be xy/(x+y) , now total time is t so simply multiple t with xy/x+y

How do you calculate average speed as xy/(x+y)??

not sure but its goes like this:
d = distance

total time t = d/x + d/y = d (1/x +1/y) = d(x+y/xy)

so distance will be xy/x+y * t

Say S miles from home

S/x + S/y = t

=> S = xyt(x+y)
