22. Danielle drives from here home to the store at an average speed of 40 miles per hour. She returns home along the same route at an average speed of 60 miles per hour. What is her average speed, in miles per hour, for her entire trip ? (A)45 (B)48 (C)50 (D)52 (E)55 This is a TRAP question ! We are NOT given enough information to use a distance formula. So we need to improvise by selecting a distance that is easy to work with. Since we have speeds of 40 and 60 mph, why not use a multiple of both, such as, 120 Distance = rate x time (going trip) 120 = 40 t where t = 3 hours (return trip) 120 = 60 t where t = 2 hours Now 240 = 5 r, where r = 48 miles per hour This is a TRAP question !
