Hey guys, I need some help with this question. So, Marco rode his dirt bike at 40 mph for 2 hours, got that part. Then he rode at a different speed for 3 more hours, okay. And at the end of the 3 hours, his average speed for the whole 5-hour ride was 30 mph. The average speed for just the 3-hour portion is E, 34 mph, but that's not right. Expert help would be appreciated.
