Average speed of an object is the distance travelled by the object at a given period of time. Average speed can be determined by using the formula, Average speed = $\frac{distance\ travelled}{time\ period}$ $V$ = $\frac{D}{T}$ where, V = Average speed D= Distance T= Time This online average speed calculator will take the distance in miles and time in minutes then calculate the average speed of an object. 
Step 2: Substitute the given values into the average speed formula given .
$V$=$\frac{D}{T}$.
Below are some of the problems given based on average speed.
Solved Examples
Question 1: A bus travels between 2 towns 60 miles apart in 2 hour 30 minutes. What is its average speed?
Solution:
Step 1: Given :
distance, D = 60 miles,
time, T = 2 hr 30 min = 150 minutes
Step 2: Average speed V = $\frac{D}{T}$
Average speed V = $\frac{60\ miles}{150\ minutes}$
Average speed V = 0.4 miles/minutes.
Therefore, the average speed of the bus is 0.4 miles/minutes.
Solution:
Step 1: Given :
distance, D = 60 miles,
time, T = 2 hr 30 min = 150 minutes
Step 2: Average speed V = $\frac{D}{T}$
Average speed V = $\frac{60\ miles}{150\ minutes}$
Average speed V = 0.4 miles/minutes.
Therefore, the average speed of the bus is 0.4 miles/minutes.
Question 2: Rishi jogs three miles in 45 minutes in a park. What is the average speed of rishi?
Solution:
Step 1: Given :
distance, D = 3 miles,
time, T = 45 minutes.
Step 2: Average speed V = $\frac{D}{T}$
Average speed V = $\frac{3\ miles}{45\ minutes}$
Average speed V = 0.067 miles/minutes.
Therefore, the average speed of rishi is 0.067 miles/minutes.
Solution:
Step 1: Given :
distance, D = 3 miles,
time, T = 45 minutes.
Step 2: Average speed V = $\frac{D}{T}$
Average speed V = $\frac{3\ miles}{45\ minutes}$
Average speed V = 0.067 miles/minutes.
Therefore, the average speed of rishi is 0.067 miles/minutes.
