#11 (km)/(min)#


I will assume none of the times T1, T2, or T3 are less than 1 min.

The maximum speed would be #(11 km)/(1 min) = 11 (km)/(min)# (or 660 km/hr).

That leaves 35 minutes to travel the remaining 5 km at perhaps #(5 km)/(35 min) = 0.143 (km)/(min# (or 8.57 km/hr).

I hope this helps,
