    Answer:

    Should be 40mph average

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If a student was driving 50mph a quarter of the way there, then 10mph the rest, that means that you can divide the drive like this. You have 4 parts of the drive, 3 of which are being drived at 50mph and the other at 10mph. You have to find the average using this equation.

    (50+50+50+10)/4

    160/4=40
