  1. let the distance be 200km

    then
    100km=30km/hr*t1 or t1=10/3 hr
    and
    100km=50km/hr*t2 or t2=2hr

    avg speed= 200km/(16/3hr)=600/16=choice A

  2. d/2 = 30 t1 so t1 = d/60

    d/2 = 50 t2 so t2 = d/100

    t = t1 + t2

    d = v (t1+t2) = v (d/60 + d/100)

    100 = v ( 5/3 + 3/3) = (8/3) v

    v = 300/8 = 37.5 km/hr
