This Month's Problem: "Mischa's Trip"
Mischa drove from A to B, a distance of 100 miles, at an average speed of 50 miles per hour, and then back from B to A along the same route at an average speed of m miles per hour. What is the value of m?
(1) Mischa’s average speed for the entire round trip, excluding any time he spent at point B, was miles per hour.
(2) If Mischa’s average speed from B to A had been 20% slower, the total time for the entire round trip, excluding any time Mischa spent at point B, would have been 12.5% greater.
