Tom went on a 3 Day road trip in which he drove the same number of miles each day. He drove 42 mph the first day. He drove 48 mph the second day. On the last day he drove a x mph. His average speed for the whole trip was 47 mph. Find x and write your answer to the nearest hundredth.

I added (42+48+x) divided by three equals 47 and got x = 51 mph

Looks good to me.

I tend to avoid fractions where possible, so I'd probably have done it as

42+48+x = 3*47
