Case I: While driving to school
Average speed of Abdul's trip = 20 km/h
Average Speed = Total distance/Total time taken

Total distance = Distance travelled to reach school = d

Let total time taken = t1

- (i)

Case II: While returning from school

Total distance = Distance travelled while returning from school = d

Now, total time taken = t2

Average speed for Abdul's Trip = Total distance covered in the trip/Total time taken

where,

Total distance covered in the trip = d + d = 2 d

Total time taken, t = Time taken to go to school + Time taken to return to school = t1 + t2

Concept Note - Consider the two cases individually to make the calculations clear and easy.

From equations (i) and (ii),

Hence, the average speed for Abdul's trip is 24 km/h.
