    Answer:

    60 km/hr

    Explanation:

    220 km is covered at 92km/hr in the round trip

    There is 1 hour lunch break

    During the return of the round trip 220 km is covered at 55km/hr

    The first step is to calculate the total distance

    = 220km + 220km

    = 440km

    The time spent during the entire round trip can be calculated as follows

    = (220/92) + 1 + (220/55)

    = 2.3913 + 1 + 4

    = 7.3913

    Therefore the average speed can be calculated as follows

    = distance/ time

    = 440/7.3913

    = 59.52

    = 60km/hr (approximated to 2 significant figures)

    Hence the average speed is 60 km/hr
