2 Answer

  • i think it is 65.45 mph cause 360 divided by 5.5 = 65.45

  • Answer:

    The Average speed of the vehicle to the nearest tenth is:

                      65.4 miles per hour.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    It is given that the total distance covered by the vehicle is: 360 miles.

    Also, total time taken by vehicle is: 5.5 hours.

    Now we are asked to find the average speed of the vehicle.

    We Know that average speed is the ratio of total distance traveled to total time taken.

    i.e.

    [tex]Average\ Speed=\dfrac{Total\ distance}{Total\ time}[/tex]

    i.e.

    [tex]Average\ Speed=\dfrac{360}{5.5}\\\\Average\ Speed=65.4545\ \text{miles\ per\ hour}[/tex]

    Hence, Average speed is: 65.4 miles per hour.
