Answer:

62 miles

Step-by-step explanation:

The formula for average is given as

Sum of values / Number of values

Let x = miles on the last day

Hence

48 + 51 + 59 + x/4 = 55

Cross Multiply

= 158 + x = 220

x = 220 – 158

x = 62

Therefore, he needs to bike 62 miles on the last day so that his average (mean) is 55 miles per day.
