If a man travels f miles an hour for t hours and r miles an hour for s hours, what is his average rate in miles per hour for the entire distance traveled?

A. ft + rs
B. (ft + rs)/2
C. t/f + s/r
D. (ft + rs)/(t + s)
E. (ft + rs)/(t + s)



Average Speed = Total Distance /Total Time Taken

Total Distance travelled in t hours = ft
Total Distance travelled in s hours = rs

Total Time taken = t+s

Therefore , Average Speed = (ft+ts)/(t+s)

Avg speed=Total Distance traveled/total time taken=(ft+rs)/t+s
Answer D
Bunuel-Answer D and E are the same-could you please make the correction?

A. ft + rs
B. (ft + rs)/2
C. t/f + s/r
D. (ft + rs)/(t + s)
E. (ft + rs)/(t - s)



Average rate in miles per second = Total distance traveled/Total time taken

Total distance traveled = f*t + r*s = ft + rs
Total time taken for this distance = t + s
Therefore,average rate in miles per hour = (ft + rs)/( t +s)
