5.3 Four race cars are traveling on a 2.5-mile tri-oval track. The four cars are traveling at
constant speeds of 195 mi/h, 190 mi/h, 185 mi/h, and 180 mi/h, respectively. Assume you are
an observer standing at a point on the track for a period of 30 minutes and are recording the
instantaneous speed of each vehicle as it crosses your point. What is the time-mean speed and
space-mean speed for these vehicles for this time period? (Note: Be careful with rounding.)
