A bicycle proprietor motorcycles x distance at 10 miles in accordance to hour and returns over the comparable course at 8 miles in accordance to hour. what's the bicycle proprietor's userfriendly value for the around holiday in miles in accordance to hour? it rather is a question of conventional velocity. It must be solved in 3 factors. a million. Going from A to B  2. Going from B to A  3. userfriendly velocity a million. Going from A to B Distance = d1 = x miles velocity = s1 = 10 miles in accordance to hour Time = t1 = Distance/ velocity = x/10 2. Going from B to A Distance = d2 = x miles velocity = s2 = 8 miles in accordance to hour Time = t2 = Distance/ velocity = x/8 3. userfriendly velocity = total Distance/total Time total Distance = x + x = 2x total Time = x/10 + x/8 = x (a million/10 + a million/8) = x(4 + 5)/40 = 9x/40 velocity = 2x/(9x/40) = (2x * 40)/9x = 80x/9x = 80/9 = 8.88889
