    Solution:

    Concept- Total time and total distance are required to calculate a man's average speed from 0 to 40 minutes.  The total distance is calculated by adding 2.5 kilometres to the distance from market to home, which can be calculated using the distance formula.

    He returns back with speed of in the rest of time, that is, 10 minutes.
    Distance Average speed =2.5+1.25 km4960hr
