**Damon**, Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 3:01amsince the total displacement vector is zero the average speed is zero.

let i be unit vector from point A to point B

velocity outbound = 40 i

velocity back = -60 i

(40 - 60)/2 = -10

**Steve**, Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 5:58amThe average velocity is zero, but the speed is not.

The total distance covered is 2d. The total time taken is

d/40 + d/60 = 5d/120

So, the average speed is 2d/(5d/120) = 48 km/hr

**Damon**, Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 10:12amWhoops, sorry, Steve is right.
