His average speed is #"12 km/hr"#.


Remember the triangle of Speed, Distance and Time. If you remember it, you'll ace these kinda questions.

I had trouble with these formulas but the triangle helped me a LOT! Anyways, let's get back to the question. The formula for average speed is pretty much the same as the formula for just speed. The average speed formula is

#"Average speed" = "Total Distance"/"Total Time"#


#"48 km"/"4 hr" = "12 km/hr"#

I hope this explanation helps you!
