Total trip distance = 250 miles
(1) The trip took Bill 5 hours.
Average speed = Total distance / Time
= 250/5
= 50 miles per hour
Sufficient
(2) At the midpoint of his trip, Bill was going exactly 50 miles per hour
Not sufficient

Answer A

(1) The trip took Bill 5 hours.

(2) At the midpoint of his trip, Bill was going exactly 50 miles per hour.



Statement 1) Speed = distance/ time = 250/5 - sufficient

Statement 2) no information on time or overall speed - not sufficient

Answer - A

Hi
I was a bit confused here. Nowhere it is mentioned that if Bill stopped on the way in his trip. How can we calculate the average speed without knowing if he stopped or not.
Please help explain?
As per me answer should be E
