let d be the one way distance. average speed for round trip= 2d/((d/40)+(d/60))=2*40*60/(40+60)=48 km/h

let the distance between the two points be D

   time taken by car to reach the other point is t1=D/40

  time taken by car to come back to the initial point is t2=D/60

   total distance travelled by car is 2D

                  average speed = total distance /total time

                                        =2D/(D/40 + D/60)
