During a trip on an expressway, Don drove a total of x miles. His average speed on a certain 5 mile section of the expressway was 30 miles per hour, and his average speed for the remainder of the trip was 60 miles per hour. His travel time for the x mile trip was what percent greater than it would have been if he had traveled at a constant rate of 60 miles per hour for the entire trip?

a. 8.5%

b. 50%

I would say E.

T1 = (x-5)/60 + 5/30
T2 = X/60

T1/T2 - 1 = 5/X
