here it is, any help is appreciated

You drive on Interstate 10 from San Antonio to Houston, half the time at 57 km/h and the other half at 99 km/h. On the way back you travel half the distance at 57 km/h and the other half at 99 km/h.

i want to find the following

What is your average speed from Houston back to San Antonio?

    Let the total time taken to drive one way (going or coming) be 2T

    => Distance covered during half the time at 57 Km/h = T*57

    => Distance covered during half the time at 99 Km/h = T*99

    Total distance one way = T*57 + T*99 = 156*T

    Average speed from Houston to San Antonio = Distance/Time = 156*T/2*T = 78 km/h

    Average speed for entire trip = (156*T + 156*T)/(2*T + 2*T) = 78 Km/h

    Average velocity for entire trip = Displacement/time = 0/4T = 0 Km/h
