Given v=65 mph
S=130 miles
we have v = s/t
t = s/v
= 130 / 65 = 2 hrs
T= 2 hour (1)

2nd case,
S= 55 mph
T= (3.33-2)
= 1.33 hour
v = s/t
Distance covered =55 *1.33= 73.33 miles (2)
From (1) and (2)
Total distance 73.33+130 = 203.33 miles

(b)Average speed = (total distance )/(total time)
=(203.33 )/3.33
=61.06 mph
