A car travels 100 miles on a straight road.
- If the car travels the entire trip at a constant speed of 50 miles per hour, how long is the trip?
- If the car travels half the distance at a constant speed of 40 miles per hour, and the other half the distance at a constant speed of 60 miles per hour, how long is the trip?
- If the car travels half the time at a constant speed of 40 miles per hour, and the other half the time at a constant speed of 60 miles per hour, how long is the trip?
