    First of all, after 20 minutes, the car has travelled 60 x (20/60) = 20 km.

    So at that time the car still has to travel 40km.

    If the car travels at 80 km/h for the remaining distance, it needs a further 40/80 = 0.5 hours or 30 minutes to finish the remaining 40km.

    So to speak, it has totally used 50 minutes or 5/6 hours to travel the whole journey of 60km.

    Hence its average speed = 60/(5/6) = 72 km/h
