**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 7:18pmHer average speed was 35 miles per hour. Since the round trip took her 1 hour, what was the total number of miles in the round trip?

If you post your answer, we'll be glad to check it.

**Damon**, Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 7:18pmwent t hours at 40

went (1-t) at 30

so

40 t = 30 (1-t)

70 t = 30

t = 3/7 of an hour

distance at 40 = (3/7)(40) = 120/7

distance at 30 = (4/7)(30) = 120/7 better be the same:) check

so total distance = 240/7

**Lisa**, Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 7:25pmI forgot to mention that this is an SAT question of the Day and they give you options for answers. The options are:

30

30 1/7

34 2/7

35

40

Sorry if the way I put it was confusing.

**Damon**, Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 7:30pm240/7 = 34 2/7

not allowed to use average because distance, not time, is the same
