answer is 24.5 mi/h.

WHY??

- math -
**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 19, 2009 at 6:29pmlet the speed in the car be x mph

so 5/6.6 + 5/x = 10/10.4

5/x = 10/10.4 - 5/6.6

5/x = .20396

x = 5/.20396

x = 24.5

he should drive the last 5 miles at 24.5 mph

check

if avg speed is 10.4 mph, then it took

10/10.4 hours or .9615 hours

time jogging = 5/6.6 = .7576 hours

time in car = 5/24.5 = .20408 hours

for a total time of .96166 hours

allowing for roundoff errors, close enough!
