Yes but I can go 60 MPH for 1 minute and then stop.

Ok.... so let's go with that... If you go 60 MPH for 1 minute, then stop.. how far did you go? answer = 1 mile.

SO if your track is 1 mile long, and on the first half mile you averaged 30mph.. that means it took you a minute to complete that first half. No matter how fast you go for the second half you cannot average 60mph for the whole track, because you used up your minute in the first half.

Correct.

It can't be done, regardless of length of track. This is an old problem I gave my 8th grade math class around 1878 or so.

Like the Cree Light Guy says "If you argue with math, you will lose......"

Course, I blew the coconut problem...so I have zero street cred.......

LOL

Speaking of "My Head exploded", I found this.

You can actually COUNT the freaking bananas in this photo:

But your last line has 3 items to ADD, and the OP's had a multiplication sign in place of one of the adds.

Yes, that's a clearer photo than the one in the OP. But it's not the exact same problem. (there's no multiplication in the one you linked).
