### Task3 - GPS How to calculate the average velocity?

Hi,
The GPS task needs to predict average velocity of vehicles passing 100 selected road segments in 6-minute time periods , I'd like to know how to calculate the average velocity ?
I presume to use the sum of all the velocities of vehicles in 6-minute time periods to divide the number of the vehicles .
Thanks.

Hello,

It is a simple arithmetic mean: for each road segment the sum of the velocities of vehicles that passed through it during the given period is divided by the total number of vehicles.

Hi,

The average velocity is a harmonic average of velocities of all cars that passed through a given road segment in 6-minute time period.
