## 7. A boy rides his bicycle 10 kms at an average speed of 12 kmph and again travels 12 kms at an average speed of 10 kmph. His average speed for the entire trip is approximately:

**Answer:**

**Option B**

**Explanation :**

Average speed is represented by total distance divided by the time taken.

Total distance = 10 kms + 12 kms = 22 kms

Total Time = (10/12) + (12/10)

? (10/12) + (12/10) = (100 + 144)/120 = 244/120 hrs

Average speed = 22/(244/120) = 10.8 kmph.

Average speed for the entire trip is 10.8 kmph.
