Sylvester is training for a boxing match. He runs due north at an average speed of 16 km/h for the first 8 km and returns to the training camp at an average speed of 10 km/h. Calculate Sylvester's average speed for the run and his average velocity.

2. Relevant equations

distance = (speed1+speed2)/2 (time)

distance = velocity x time

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know how to go about this when they have not provided the time. Help?
