The formula for finding the average speed is calculated by dividing the total distance traveled by the total time taken. This formula gives the average rate at which an object has covered a certain distance over a specific period of time. By dividing the total distance by the total time, we can determine the average speed at which the object has moved.

The average speed is calculated by dividing the total distance traveled by the total time taken. In this case, if you travel 80 miles in 8 hours, the average speed would be 10 mph (80 miles / 8 hours = 10 mph). Therefore, 100 mph is not the average speed.

A. 50 mph.
Explanation
The average speed is calculated by dividing the total distance traveled by the total time taken. In this case, the total distance traveled is 300 miles and the total time taken is 6 hours. Therefore, the average speed is 300 miles divided by 6 hours, which equals 50 mph.
