I need some help on an issue i cant realy understand:
I have to objects (A & B). I have the speed of both of them
A: 1m / 1h = 1 m/h
B: 1m /3h = 0,33 m/h
Now if i want to find the average speed of both objects im getting different results:
1. 2m / 4h = 0.5 m/h
2. (1+0.33)/2 = 0.665 m/h
could some one please explain me why i get the difference and which will be the correct answer
Thanks in advance
I don't really understand where you got #1 from.

Its is the sum of the distance over the sum of the time...
