A- 12 km

B- 42 minutes

C- 17.14 km per hour

Explanation:

A- The displacement of the total trip is 12 kilometers, which emerges by adding the 10 kilometers traveled by car to the 2 kilometers traveled on foot.

B- The trip, in total, took 42 minutes, which arises from adding the 30 minutes of the journey on foot, plus 12 minutes of travel by car at 72 km / h (72/60 x 10 = 12).

C- While 12 km were covered in 42 minutes, the average speed of the trip was 17.14 km / h. This arises from the following calculation:

42 = 12

60 = X

(60 x 12) / 42 = X

17.14 = X
