```							avg speed=total dist/total time
let s = dist covered
total dist=2s
total time=s/4 + s/8 = 3s/8
avg speed=16/3 m/s =5.33 m/s

```							You have to speculate given this convoluted question. Let us assume that the time taken to travel up the hill istseconds. Then, the time taken to travel down the hill is 1/2 oftseconds as the speed now is twice than that of the former. The total distance traversed, we assume, is 2d metres. Hence, the average speed is:2d/(1/2 + 1)t.There you go. You might have realized that this question isn`t testing you on physics; rather, it is testing you on math.
