Two trucks start from the same point. One truck travels due east at a rate of 50 mph and the other trucks travels due north at a rate of 60 mph. At what rate is the distance between the two vehicles increasing 1 1/2 hours later?

I think the answer is 55 mph because I added 60 + 55 and divided by 2 and got 55 mph.
