 2 mile road.. car completes first mile at 30mph. What speed the car should drive the second mile to end up with an average speed of 60 mph?3 AnswersNot possible. For 60mph, car needs to complete 2 miles in 2 mins. If car goes by 30mph for first mile, 2 mins are over.If second mile a car drives with speed 90 mph, average speed of driving (30+90)/2 = 60 (mph). Possible but you can get a ticket :)impossible. make x as the speed of second mile: 2/(1/30+1/x) = 60 there is no solution for x.
