By definition the average speed is the ration of the total traveled distance and the total traveled time. Let us introduce the total traveled distance of the car as L. Then the time of the travel up the hill is

t1 = L/74

The time of the travel down the hill is

t2 = L/132

The total traveled time is

 t = t1 + t2 = L/74 + L/132 = 0.0211 L

Then the average velocity is

 Vavg = L/t = L/0.0211 L = 47.393 km/hr

Dear student 
Average speed Of thw whle trip will be 
= 2V1V2 / V1+ V2 
=> 2* 37 * 66 /103 
=> 47.47 m/sec 
Hope this clears
