Calculating average rate is this a typo ?
The question is (it seems pretty straightforward to me)
Quote:

A train travels from point A to point Bin 46 minutes.If the distance between two points is 59.8 miles. What is the average rate of of train in miles per hour ?
Here is how i did it ...
46 min = 46/60=23/30 hrs
S=59.8
S/t = v
so
(59.8x30)/23 =78 Ans

$78 \, miles/hr \times \frac{46}{60} \, hr = ?$
