Answer:
Acccording to the question,
Half journey travelled at 60km/h
Remaining journey = 1 - 1/2 = 1/2 = 90 km
Hence, total journey is 180 km.
speed = distance/time
speed for the remaining journey = 90/1.5 = 60 km/hr
Hence, as the speed is same for the first half journey and the remaining journey average speed for the whole journey is 60 km/hr.
