Answer:
The Average speed of the vehicle to the nearest tenth is:
65.4 miles per hour.
Stepbystep 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.
