Lexy walks 5 miles from point A to point B in one hour, then bicycles back to point A along the same route at 15 miles per hour. Ben makes the same round trip, but does so at half of Lexy’s average speed. How many minutes does Ben spend on his round trip?
Time taken by Lexy: 1 hour + 5/15 = 1 + 1/3 hours i.e 1 hour and 20 minutes
If Ben travels at half the speed then the time taken will be doubled: 2 hours and 40 minutes which is 120 + 40 = 160 minutes
