Awerage speed = Distance Time
Distance=1500m or 0.93 mile
To comvert "m" to mile devide distance value by 1609
To convert "s" to "hour" devide the tive value by 3600
time=431s or ( 431 3600 )  hr 0.119  hour
average speed= = 0.93  mile 0.119  hour 7.8 miles hours
average speed= 7.8 miles hour  1

Boat B goes across at 30 km/h, and its crew, realizing how far behind it is getting, returns at 90 km/h. Turnaround times are negligible, and the boat that completes the round trip first wins
