Total Distance : 1*60 +60=120
Total time taken = 1+ 60/30= 1+2=3
Hence average speed for the trip = 120/3= 40 kmph
Hence Ans B.

Average Speed = Total Distance/Total Time = (60+60)/(1+2) = 120/3 = 40

We can use the formula: average = total distance/total time.

Time 1 = 1 hour and time 2 = 60/30 = 2 hours. Total time is 3 hours.

Distance 1 = 60 miles and distance 2 = 60 miles. Total distance is 120 miles, so we have:

average speed = 120/3 = 40 mph

Answer: B
