    Answer – 75miles/hour

    EXPLANATION
    For 50 miles it takes 1 hour to travel

    So, for 10 miles it takes   10/50   hours
    = (10/50) *60mins
    = 12minutes

    So return time should be 20-12=8minutes

    Speed=10/8 in miles per minute         [Speed=Distance/Time]
    =(10*60)/8 in mile per hour
    =75
    Ans.   75miles/hour
