You need to consider time in your solution. For example, if the average speed is 47 km/h and the distance traveled is 99 km, how long should this take to occur?

Welcome to PF;
You didn't provide a lot of information - i.e. the "relevant equations" section is not filled in.
It is difficult to know what sort of reply will best fit your need.
From the unfinished calculation in section 3, we can make a guess but we could guess wrong.

Did you have a specific question for us or did SteamKing manage to cover it?
