Traffic was bad going to work this morning. I only managed to average 30 mph.
How fast must I go home tonight, along the same route, to average 60 mph for the entire round trip?
It does not matter how far the trip is, let's assume that it is random distance, say 60 miles, and remembering that Time = Distance ÷ Speed.
The morning trip took 60 miles ÷ 30 mph = 2 hours.
To average the required 60 mph, we would have to travel the total distance (of 120 miles) in 2 hours. However, we've already used all of the two hours for the morning trip!
Choosing any random distance would also show that it can't be done.
